Validation. Finally.

Validation is a strange thing.  It’s something we all want, but no one knows how they will respond when they get it.

For me, it came in the form of screaming at the top of my lungs and scaring the heck out of my husband and dog.

Then the tears start.

“Mommy, are you okay?”  Wide concerned little eyes look up at me while I drench my husband’s shoulder in tears.

“Yes, boys, Mommy is great.  Sometimes adults cry when they are really happy.”

“Oh…”  they look at each other with confused expressions, and then join in the hug fest.

All I am allowed to say right now is that I’m really happy.

Are ya getting that?

Yesterday’s post showed what a great day it was for me, and I’m still tingling.

After a few little legal things are taken care of, I will be able to tell you why, but if you’re new here, check out my Monday Night posts from the last month if you’d like a clue or two.
