Last night at work, I got a call from Chris, who said Ella was crying for her mommy and wanted to talk to her. Ella got on the phone and said, "Mommy, can you come home? Ella really, really misses her Mommy." :(
I said, "I miss you, too, but I have to stay at work. I will see you in the morning when I get home."
She said, "Mommy has to take care of the sick people and make them feel better," and I said, "Yes, there's lots of people here who don't feel good. I need to give them medicine and take care of them and make them feel better."
She thought for a minute and said, "Mommy, you're an angel!"
Talk about melting my heart! What a sweet, sweet moment that I desperately needed in the middle of a very busy night.
