The sacrament of the Hello Kitty stickers

She is not the quickest to give affection so when L said, Mama, you've been very good. I need to give you a special sticker, I immediately bent down to her level.

I need to give you another one. And another one. I held as still as an unspoken prayer while she blessed me with the currency of her love.

she instructed, and I promised I would. Her gentle touch is too infrequently bequeathed. Her fingertips brush a hymn on my skin and I am annointed.

Then she goes to bed and I kiss her goodnight, whisper a prayer of thanks for her generosity,and rip those suckers off.

They are sooooo itchy.
