Verbal Sunshine

"A compliment is verbal sunshine."
-Robert Orben

I had a few extra minutes to get ready for church on Sunday morning, and I took some extra time with my hair.

My outfit wasn't anything outstanding...just a cute pair of black legging tights, paired with a three-quarter length sleeved gray dress and black flats.

My heart just about melted as I was helping Natalie put on her shoes.

"Mommy, you look Vanstatic." she said enthusiastically.

I paused for a moment before breaking into a huge grin. "You mean "Fantastic'?"

"Yes," she nodded. " pretty!"

This is one of the greatest blessings of having children.

They love me unconditionally, no matter how bad my hair looks, how much make-up I put on, or even if I've shrieked at them for coloring on the white table with pink marker.

No matter how much I resemble this:

They make me feel like this:

That is a blessing.

"Verbal sunshine" can really make your day!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

{Don't forget that the Decorating Dilemmas party will go up tomorrow (Tuesday) night after 10 pm (EST) and will go on all day Wednesday! There's gonna be a priiiiiiiiize!}
