My daughter has always been a very good child. Whenever we would be out shopping, if she wanted something, and the answer from me was no, she never argued or threw a fit.
Moving ahead a decade later, and entering the workforce, she continues to be a true blessing to me. Every day, she will ask me, “Mom, what do you need me to do today?” (As in, what chores do I want done?) Whenever I share this with others, they are stunned by it. It makes me realize that my dd is not the norm, and we are truly blessed to have her. She has a very sensitive, caring spirit, and can sense when I am beginning to feel overwhelmed. She will immediately come to me, seeking to help me get caught up, etc., so that I won’t feel so stressed out.
When I came home from work yesterday, she sat down with her laptop while I was enjoying some quiet time on the couch, and she started typing up her school lessons for this week. She only needed to ask me a few things on a couple of her courses. The rest — she already knew exactly what needed to be done.
If she forgets to ask me if I need her to do any chores, I can expect to get a phone call or an email later while at work, asking me that very question. What a good kid!!! She is a very special, caring young lady. Whoever her future mate will be is going to be one blessed man indeed.
