#NaPhoPoMo Day 6...Messes just happen

Life can be a little messy...
and often at the most inopportune times!!!

Never does an egg drop to the floor when you have hours to spare for cleaning such a mess.
A cup of milk rarely spills and misses the freshly mopped floor.
And tomato soup is sure to drip down that sweet little chin on to the just laundered shirt, pants and finally dribble onto the chair below.
It just seems to happen that way.

DAY 6 
is for the messes that just happen

And more importantly,
for the tenderness and respect 
we can share with those special little people who tend to create such messes.

My little one was busy helping me in the kitchen, running to get a little of this and hurrying to help with a little of that.
My back was turned when I heard her shaky voice cry out, "Oh, nards!"
I turned in time to see an instant of panic cross her sweet little face.
The tears were close, but with a gentle touch on her shoulder,
a sincere smile from mom, followed up with a mighty quick,
"Dang...I hate it when stuff like that happens,
let's clean it up together"
she quickly recovered and all was well.

Messes happen...
and from them, lessons on the important REAL stuff in life.

So grateful for my amazing bunch AND for the countless times we've cleaned up together!
