“Mommy? Are you too busy?”
With a quiet voice full of trepidation, my independent 6-year-old approached the computer at bedtime, interrupting an email check. Daddy was busy reading books to the younger two. Her book had already been read.
I didn’t know what she wanted, and I’m thankful that at that moment it didn’t matter. I’m thankful that I looked into her eyes and gave her my full attention. I’m thankful that I smiled and answered “No. I’m not too busy.”
“Can we go in my bed and snuggle while they read books?”
Sweet music to a mother’s ears! We climbed in her bed and curled up, drinking in the moment. No talking. No giggling. Just us.
Please God, don’t let me ever be too busy.
