The Keeper of the Cheerios

Elizabeth is sick.  I was awakened at 3:15am to calls of "Mama" and a fever of 103.5.

Sometimes, there are a couple of songs that run through my head when my life as a mom seems its most unglamorous.

"Somebody's Hero" by Jamie O'Neal (Shaye Smith, and Ed Hill)
"...No, she's just your everyday, average girl (but)
She's somebody's hero.
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee.
A little kiss is all she needs.
The keeper of the cheerios.
The voice that brings Snow White to life,
Bedtime stories every night.
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero..."

"Heroes" by Paul Overstreet
"...She rocks her crying baby
In the hours before dawn.
She whispers words of hope to help her
husband to hold on.
She takes time with the children
Making sure they know she cares.
She's more than just a Momma,
She's the answer to their prayers.
'Cause you know heroes come in every shape and size,
Making special sacrifices for others in their lives.
No one gives them medals.
The world don't know their names.
But in someone's eyes, they're heroes just the same.
Now, I don't pretend to know you.
But, I'll bet it's safe to say
There's someone out there somewhere looking
up to you today.
They see everything you do,
Except for your mistakes.
You may not think you measure up,
but you got all it takes..."

I may not be curing disease or influencing governments.  I may not be teaching classrooms full of future generations.  I may not be bringing home a six figure income (or any income for that matter).  But, I know who the bear "with the footprints on the bottom" is when Spence is crying for him.  There are times when I'm the only person in the world that makes it better when they're hurt or scared.  And, I'm the one that makes my baby girl feel better when she's sick in the middle of the night.
And, you know what?  That makes me feel like the most important person in the world.

I thіnκ that ωhаt you publіѕheԁ was verу logical.
Hоwever, whаt abοut this? ѕuppose you weгe to сreate a aweѕome headlinе?
I am not ѕuggеsting your infοrmаtion is not good.

, howeνer ωhat іf уou aԁԁed a headline that grabbed peορle's attention? I mean "The Keeper of the Cheerios" is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's frοnt pagе anԁ note how they create poѕt titlеѕ to
grab people tο open the linκs. Yоu might add a viԁеo οг a
pic οг two to grab peοplе excited
about evегуthіng've written. In my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.
