An Unexpected Gift
January 18th, 2010
January 18th, 2010
Turning on my left side to face my alarm clock, I moved my messy hair for a clear view of my helpful yet irritating alarm clock. Oddly enough, the clock was not there and I was forced against my own will to begin a search. As I scoured the room, I began to think that I had accidentally knocked it off in the attempt to make it snooze (as I occasionally do). After searching the entire area, I simply checked the time on my phone - 7:03 A.M.
Suddenly, it hit me that I was supposed to wake up about twenty minutes ago! With a sense of urgency in my mind, I stepped out my bedroom and entered the hall that is usually busy at this hour. That's when the windy gusts of white caught my attention out the hexagon window. The height of me on my tip-toes was just enough to see the spectacle of the sparkling snow which could have been the reason nobody was awake. The thought ran through my head, "How can I find out? I don't want to disturb anyone - but it's Tuesday, the day after the Martin Luther King holiday..."
Although, I didn't have to worry for long, because when Mom came out of her room, I knew I would get the answers to all of my questions. Just then, I was going to ask her about the whereabouts of my alarm clock when she turned around and told me herself: "Oh, and I hope you don't mind that I took your alarm clock. I took it so you wouldn't keep checking the time and ruin your sleep. But I guess that didn't work out too well..." All I did was wrap my arms around her and she received the message. She smiled and lovingly put her comforting hand on my shoulder, saying, " You don't have school today, go back to sleep and then enjoy your day off," The excitement was unbelievable - a four-day weekend!
If it were anyone else, I would not have been able to fall back asleep with the excitement of the unexpected gift. It was the Touch of Mother's Hand that sent a feeling of serenity and calmed me, allowing me to fall back into the World of Dreams...
Thank you Mom.
