Took the munchkin to Wal-Mart tonight. Mom came along. After we checked out, we took the little girl over to the game room. She had been begging to go "round and round". So, I fed the merry-go-round the necessary two quarters. The music started, the horses whirled, and the face lit up. "WHEE!" She actually said, "Whee!"
And I was struck by how we all go around and around. We all have our moments with our children. Some moments we're on top of the world. Some we're down as far as we can be. But eventually we all come back around to where we started.
I'll go around as many times as it takes. This is one wild ride, but I know that it all comes around to the right side.
