Today, my 6-year-old sat on my lap and I embraced her comfortably from behind while I trimmed her fingernails.
It was a calm morning, no shouting, we weren’t rushing, she was already dressed for school, she already finished her breakfast and we were just waiting for the school service.
I started with her pinky and then her ring finger when she suddenly said,
“Awww… I’m so glad I have you in my life, Mom.”
I don’t know if she’s just happy that someone trims her fingernails for her but I heartily replied,
I’m so glad I have you in my life too..
