    Well, and everyday of course!

    But, today I actually feel it. Why? Because my difficult child is a happy girl today. I know I do not post much about her anymore. She is still difficult and very up and down with moods. But today she even helped me take out the garbage! I mean like a new kid in my house!!! It is so cool to have another happy individual in the house! LOL!

    Funny how I related it to myself, huh? But, it is the feeling her good days bring out in me.

    difficult child taking out the garbage without complaint? You are a good mom!

    Good to hear that she's in a good place; so much better for our state of mind!

    Geeze, my difficult child takes out the trash but only because it's on his chore list and tied to his allowance!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, but I do not often feel it like I felt it last night. It is amazing what someone else's mood can do for/to your own mood.

    You are a great mom! It's nice to see an occasional return on our investments that's for sure.
