Thanks Giving.

Mabel: ‘MAMA! I AM A RAINBOW! KISS MY FINGERS!’

And I do, of course. One should never say no to a Rainbow.

And then…

Mabel: ‘MAMA! I AM CLAPPING THE KISSES!’

Sometimes, the truth (no one will tell you) is that your kids will make your heart swell; like the ocean; like an orchestra, and in such a way that it fills up your whole body and your whole day and your whole life. And all the things that you have thought you were not doing well enough stop calling to you, because right now, fallen in your lap, is someone who makes you see just how well you are doing.
