I dread the day that I fall off of Mickey's pedestal.
It will be a hard fall.
I know it is coming.. which sometimes steals the joy of basking in his adoration.
He has no idea that I have glaring character flaws.
He only knows that I am his mother and he feels infinitely loved by me.
When I was heading out on a date with hubby a few months back, Mickey stopped in his tracks and gazed at me with admiration, "MOM! You are the most beautiful lady wherever you go! I have tucked those sweet words in the pocket of my heart!
This morning as I was preparing breakfast for the Mousekins and singing-- (it's a family trait--we randomly break out into song--drives Hubby crazy) Mickey broke in, "OH MOM, You MUST go on American IDOL! You have the most beautiful voice!"
Others see me as an ordinary housewife/mom in a small midwestern town, but in the eyes of my six year old son, I am a Rock Star Beauty Queen!
And while I am on this pedestal, I know this is my optimal time to have my actions, my words, and my thoughts point to Jesus so that when I take my rightful place in Mickey's heart, he will realize that it was Jesus on the Pedestal all along!
