My Favorite Thing
The simple act of reading my child a book.
There is nothing in the world I would rather do.
All I have to say is, "Ann Catherine, do you want mommy to read you a book?" And her face lights up like it's Christmas. She crawls in my lap and listens as if I am telling her all the world's secrets.
This is what life is all about.
And this is why I wanted to be home at night.
I loved being a news anchor. And I loved sitting on the anchor desk next to Jerry every night.
But I love sitting in the floor with my child on my lap even more.
Don't get me wrong. My child loves watching Elmo and Barney. And she loves going outside to play.
But there is nothing like the connection between a parent and child as you share the magic of a good book.
I thank God for these small miracles.
