Just For Today

I get sent daily parenting emails and thought this was a nice one to share...

Just for today, tell your kids: I'll forget about the laundry and take you to the park. I will silence the cell phone, turn off the computer and sit with you and blow bubbles. Just for today, I will let you wear whatever you want and smile and say how perfect it is. I will skip my favorite TV shows and snuggle beside you for hours. I will let you stay up late so we can sit and count the stars.

Just for today, I will think about the mothers and fathers who no longer have their children, and I will be thankful I have you... just for today.
