I Want to Be Famous

My Chloe keeps telling me, "Mommy, you're the most famous girl I have ever known!"

I almost don't want to correct her word usage because, frankly, it's kind of awesome to be told I'm famous! (For the record, I have talked to her about the definition of the word and the fact that it might not be the word she's looking for. I asked her why she keeps using and she told me she likes the sound of it (haha!). I don't think she grasps the concept still...)

I think I've always had this underlying desire to have fame and fortune. I wouldn't have admitted that until just recently, but I can't remember a time when I didn't daydream about being "discovered" and becoming a household name, wanting for nothing because my fame has brought me fortune.

Now here's my beautiful, precious little girl looking at me with a giant grin and a sparkle in her eye, telling me I'm the most famous girl she knows. I'm realizing that's the best kind of famous to be!

All my life I've longed to be known and adored and loved - and all of these dreams can be met in my own home. And that's good enough for me!

If my children are the only ones who ever know my name and are impacted by my life and gifts, my joy will be full and my fame will be had and my fortune will be very great.
