A couple days ago, the girls and I were driving to go see my mom. I made the comment that we haven't seen her in awhile. Sharon immediately replied, "Well, I guess that's because you don't need her help anymore."
I find it amazing that at the age of seven, Sharon understands my transformation better than some adults who have known me for years. I often think that she doesn't remember that Mommy used to need help running all of her errands and completing her household chores. I guess that's not the case at all.
Even though Sharon was only six when began learning how to do things independently, I can't help but think that that she won't ever take the little things in life for granted. I think that there is a lot that we can learn from her attitude and outlook.
