Validation from my kids


(Picture from a recent evening power outage)

Conversation #1:
Scarlett, looking at our wedding photo: Is that you and daddy?
Me: Yes.
Scarlett: You look like Elsa.  That's super beautiful.

Conversation #2, a few days later:
Nevin: That's great, mom!
Me, with a tiny bit of sarcasm: Thanks, Nevin.
Nevin: You don't think you are great, but you are.

I know self worth must come from the inside, but sometimes I need praise.  And hearing it from my children is just validating and totally heartbreaking.
