Just like that.

I have had a terrible, rotten, no good, very bad day.

It has been filled with ridiculousness, assholes, ingrates, feral cats (otherwise known as my children), a very large adolescent dog that eats crayons and a killer sore throat.

Five minutes ago, I was ready to run away to an ashram (as long as there is a drop zone with 30 miles).

But, then in one moment everything changed. Lily, my oldest, traveled right to me (sulking and stewing in a chair) and whispered in my ear: "I love you. I love you so much I just want to eat you up."

And just like that, today will go down as one of my best memories ever.
