Madly In Love

The other day, Diva asked me if having her was the best decision of my life.  My brain whirled with thoughts...

...if I was a good non-neurotic Momma, I would automatically say yes
...if I say something other than yes, will I scar her for life?
...should I mention that we didn't view having her as a "decision" but rather left the possibility of a child in God's hands
...should I tell her the truth

And the truth did set me free of all of those other thoughts pounding in my head.

I told her that the single most important and best decision of my life was to marry her Daddy.

All other decisions stemmed from that one. 

All of the opportunities in my adult life have been because I made the decision to say "yes" to Engineer.  All of the best things that have happened, all of the hard decisions, the ones that hurt the most, the scariest decisions, the most rewarding outcomes, all took root in that simple answer.

That's what I told her.

And she understood.
