I think reliable is a marvelous word. Reliability makes the world go round! Here are some reliable things in my life:
1-Sunshine. Here it is very rare to have a cloudy day all day. The sun is tenacious and almost always peeks through.
2-Yesterday Emma got herself up and out the door in the predawn hours and headed to her Shakespeare Competition all by herself. Of course she did. She's Emma.
3-The night before Emma left they had a Night of Shakespeare showcase. It was my third year running and high school students doing Shakespeare is painful. You can stitch that on a pillow.
4-Emma's room looks like a tornado struck (as per usual). I'm not sure if this happened before or after she left but I'm guessing before.
5-Mark and I were talking about a song for his audition. He refused all of my suggestions. Because he is one of my children.
6-When I texted Adam yesterday that it was a soup and bread sort of day he stopped at Kneaders on the way home from work. For soup and bread.
It's so nice to have things you can count on.
