Today was the perfect imperfect day. How you ask? My prince went to work this morning after getting word that work isn't going so well. We were joking as we dressed this morning about it. Really, who jokes about job loss in an economy such as this. I mean there are NO jobs, especially for an architect. But what are you going to do, worry? "Who of you can add one more day to your life by worrying?" I believe that is Matthew 5 or somewhere in the Bible. Anyway. Not the perfect way to start a day, but hey, life is life, and definitely not perfect! Then there was bedtime...my little Cinderella wanted a bed time story. She wanted me to read "Dance Me Daddy" but instead of all the places it says daddy she said to substitute mommy. No offense to my prince - he is the apple of her eye, but I was the one in the room at the time - I am not kidding myself, I know how this works! ANYWAY, so I am reading the book and she is patting my let and smiling at me. If you haven't read the book, it is based on the song "King of the World" by Point of Grace. It is wonderful and comes with a CD. So there we sat in the soft blue room lit only by the little night light by her bed me rubbing her back, her head in my lap, listening to a song about a little girl and her dad. She hugged me and said :I just love you so much" GULP...what do you do? I just hugged back and said "I love you so much too!" So you see if this were the perfect setting, we'd be listening to some inspirational song like Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings" or something and just have read oh I don't know maybe Proverbs 34 about the virtuous woman. "Her children rise and call her blessed..." But we weren't yet it was PERFECT! Then off to help the prince with a research paper. He is in Graduate School and this is Finals Week. The perfect night with the man of your dreams doesn't typically consist of two laptops on a home made desk and lots of statistical reports, but it was. Why - we were together, working toward a common goal - Getting him an A+! Life is in the small things - and perfection is in the imperfection.
