Little Blessings :: My Husband

I am so incredibly lucky, I married such a wonderful man. He is kind, loving, thoughtful and good looking to boot. He tells me daily that I am beautiful and that he love me. He makes the bed, cleans, and helps with dishes. When he knows I have had a stressful day with the kids, he’ll send me out for coffee, so I can have some peace and quiet. I know he would do anything for me. He is a wonderful father, fantastic husband, and my best friend.

Little Blessings :: MOM … I love you.

This one always makes me stop and smile. It usually happens on nights like tonight when I am tired and anxious to just get the kids in bed. Both kids do it, just differently. Nicholas will start yelling Mom, mom, MOOOOOOM. When I relpy “WHAT?!” he’ll quietly say “Iloveyou” really fast so all the words run together. Natalie is my gentle soul. She can sense when I need it, she come up to me quietly, wrap her arms around my neck, rest her head on my shoulder and say “I love you Mommy”

Both bring tears to my eyes when they do this. They make me realize the important things in life. The give me the ability to push through the fatigue and be the best Mom that I can be, to be the type of Mom that they deserve. They are awesome kids. I love them and I am so proud of them and I thank God every day for blessing me with them.

Thank You God.

My Little Blessings

Surrounded as we are with advertisements for all thing material, sometimes it is hard to sit back and realize how many “little blessings” God has bestowed on us. I am not talking about anything material. I am talking about the many little things in my life that make me truly happy, the type of things that money cannot buy. I realized yesterday (not for the first time, of course) that I have some really fabulous friends. I was at the H1N1 clinic which, as you may have read in my post yesterday, was running really behind.  As the minutes ticked by I kept anxiously looking at my watch and much to my chagrin, I realized that Nicholas and I would not be able to get our shots AND make it back to school in time to get Natalie. I didn’t want to have to get in line and wait again today. I phoned a friend who’s daughter is in Natalie’s class. She agreed to not only pick Natalie up, she also gave her a snack, lent her a bathing suit and took her to swimming lessons. Because of her generosity, we were able to get our shots and Natalie didn’t have to miss her lesson (plus she got to play with a friend). I am so grateful to have such fantastic people in my life.
