Life is filled with love, work, joy and sorrow. As I reflect on love in particular, I think of my children. Our children can make us laugh, and our children can make us cry. They cause us to smile, feel anger, irritation and complete ecstasy.
I was home with all my children Monday. One child had a doctor’s appointment an hour away. Another had a school project to work on, and my youngest, who is extremely active, was stuck in the house because of the rain. He caused a ruckus all day long! In the evening he sneaked into my bathroom and sprayed my Donna Karan perfume all over himself — the only bottle of perfume I use. I was worn out by this time.
I then overheard him ask his sister, “Don’t you wish the WHOLE world was Chuck E. Cheese?”
To which my 12-year-old daughter answered, “No. I like Chuck E. Cheese, but I also like my home and other aspects of the world.”
