Even if I could clean up the house, I sure wouldn't elect to do so. Lets face it, if we were given a super power, cleaning up the house would be fairly low on the list of good versus evil. Super powers... What would you do if you had a super power? Some folks would fly. Some would become invisible. Fly or invisiblity, these two super powers are often the debate of divine super-poweredness.
But, as crazy as momma is sometimes... she also rubs my tummy, smiling down at my face while she holds me tight and tells me, "You have changed my world." I stare at her, curious and wondering, 'What? What have I changed for you?' All the while a little confused. Questioning what could I, a little dog, offer to this person, the woman with the opposable thumb who does whatever she wants.. how could I 'change her life?'
She holds me tight, wipes away a tear of joy from her eye, leans closer and whispers in my ear, "you've made me a better person Mattie." And I know, by the tone of her voice, and the softness of her touch, that this is miraculous for her. I am her miracle.
I am her super-power.
