And then

…and then she turned to me, babybear, the last child, the only girl arriving surprisingly after 4 strapping sons, the child that has eschewed any likeness to her very girly-girl mother in favor of the opposite of whatever I was wearing or doing, she turned to me as she primped next to me this morning (a recent and delicious treat) and said “We should TOTALLY get matching dresses and go dancing together on our next girl’s night!”
And I died. I died from the happiness, the wild pleasure gushing from my heart. I died willingly in the golden warmth of her affirmation and sweet adoration. And I died complete in my lipsticked, perfume scented, mascaraed world, the one I have inhabited alone for so many years….❤️
