But today, today was different.
(Even if I overslept... by an hour.)
Most mondays don't start with 83 degree weather, tiny swim suits and even tinier sunglasses. Beach towels spread in the grass. Mud soup being mixed in a pale blue bucket. Most mondays aren't like today.
Most mondays don't include seeing Kasey, blowing bubbles, easter baskets or plans to bedazzle a walker.
Most mondays don't end with best friends and little brothers at the park, swingsets and see-saws.

Followed by a good dose of kitty playtime.
I think it was a sign that the first time I met Maddie, I stayed for hours longer than I planned. A week later and we were stuck together for almost forty-six hours. Now? She's esentially my little sister and my favorite teenager by far.

Maddie Hill, I adore you to pieces and I'm so glad that THON made you a part (such a big part) of my life. I'm sorry that we don't get to spend more time together but I love every minute that we do. I can't wait to go shopping, talk about boys and sing to the radio with you & Katie. I hope your birthday was incredible because you deserve it. <3
