The Softer Side of the WOM

For anyone confused by the term WOM, it stands for Wingmen of Mayhem and is the nickname that I gave my sons some time ago. Very appropriate on most days! However, they have their softer sides. Today, they both spent a good amount of time picking flowers, leaves, blades of grass and little sticks and bringing them to me. Because they love me! How sweet..... and they do this almost every day that they play outside and can find flowers. In the winter, they bring me colored leaves and rocks.

Here is the cute little vase of flowers that came of their offerings (Thanks to Jenna for arranging them!).



So, in the middle of stress, anxiety and chaos..... the Wingmen prevail with offerings of love and beauty. And my day is just a little bit brighter as a result.

Thank you for all of the awesome and supportive comments lately. Your kind thoughts and warm wishes are the flowers that I needed......
