“Mommy, Today Was a Small Day”

My six year old whimpers beside me, “Mommy, today was a small day.” 

“What made it small?” 

“There were not enough play dates or friends.  This was not a big day.  I need big days.”

Already, I think about what kind of big life this little girl will lead.  She’s challenging me to wake up to big days.  I don’t want to ever have a day that’s too small. 

I’ll never have this day again.  Lord, let it be a big day.

Living with flair means we don’t have small days.
