Yesterday, I got paid. Now, nobody handed me a paycheck, nor did I receive a 'direct deposit'. My career is not one in which I earn an hourly wage and though it most resembles a salaried position, that doesn't quite encompass my pay scale and wage-earning capacities. You see, I am a mom. And motherhood is largely a 'sow now and reap later position'. However, occassionally a mother receives a payment in advance. That's what I got yesterday. It was personally delivered by a little 3 year old princess, complete with arms wrapped tightly around my neck and these words whispered in my ear: "It sure is nice to have a mommy in our home". Thank You, Jesus, for such a sweet reward!
