Recovery

I was walking down the street today, and these three little kids were standing on the side of the road.  They waved at me and I waved back, and right after I passed them I could swear I heard one of the little girls saying, “She looks pretty.”  Now, before I left the house, I looked in the mirror at my frizzy hair and hoped no one noticed.  Besides the frizz, I was rocking a camo skirt and my kickass XX-Hi Converse, which always give me confidence anyway, but this compliment from a little girl gave me an extra boost. 

Mom had her surgery today, and she’s in recovery now.  Dad’s going to take me to the hospital later today, but he says she’ll probably be asleep.  She’s coming home on Saturday, and I hope that I’ll be able to take care of her.
