Today Lily was at her dentist appointment. It had been a crazy, hectic, somewhat stressful afternoon where things just weren't quite going my way. Ever had one of those? Anyway, when she was finished, the hygenist pulled me aside into this little room. I was thinking, uh, oh---something must be wrong. After she told me that Lily's teeth were fine, she said she just wanted to tell me how much they love Lily because she is so mannerly and sweet. She ended by saying, " You've got a really great kid there." I thanked her and told her that is music to a parents' ears. I thought it was really nice of her to take time to tell me that, too. God really knows when to give you a little pick-me-up doesn't he? Manners are something very important to Jeff and me and something we work on daily with the kids. It's just so nice to know it is paying off in some way, however small. Just a little proud moment I wanted to share. It's the little things, ya know;-)
