The Greatest Compliment I Ever Received

Tonight, Bunny and I had a “girls’ night.” Basically, that meant that she got to pick a movie for us to watch together. She chose Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front, since she recently read the whole Molly series of books.

After the movie, we were talking about what a movie about Bunny would look like, if someone made one 50 years from now. So, I asked her what made her special, what someone might want to share in a movie. She thought for a moment, then responded, “I have the nicest Mommy.”

I really think that’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me.

Yes, I cried a little. I never would have thought that she would see me as what makes her special. Of course, after I dried my eyes, we talked about things about her, specifically, and why she herself is special. I wanted to make sure she could think of some things that are unique and special about her, without talking about me.

But still. She sees me as what makes her special. And that made me feel special!
