According to the newspaper headline, my youngest daughter had to determine which delightful words described the “World’s Best Mom!”, which apparently was me. Madelyn vigorously began checking every box, giving very little thought to selecting the outstanding and colorful verbs.
After completing the entire list of more than twenty words, she paused to glance back over the list. She realized she made a mistake. Turning her pencil around, she carefully erased one check mark, then another. To be certain I didn’t see a remnant of the check marks, Madelyn scribbled out the words. That is, the words that don’t describe me.
