Emma and I had a long day yesterday of not getting along all that well. My last words to Emma last night were, "Let's have a better day tomorrow, okay?" She nodded her head.
Normally our wake up call is Emma standing next to our bed saying over and over again, "I need milk!" I guess she remembered our conversation last night because John and I received a sweet wake-up call this morning. She went to John's side of the bed and said in the sweetest voice, "Daddy, I see a rainbow on the brown chair. Please, come and look. There is a rainbow. And, I need milk. " (She wouldn't be Emma if she didn't end the sentence in need of something) I went in the living room with her and there on the brown chair was a little rainbow from the sun shining through the window. By the time I found the camera, the rainbow was gone. Thus, no picture.
It is amazing how a sweet "hello" in the morning can change your day. The rainbow also reminded me to enjoy the small things in life. I love seeing things through the eyes of a child.
