This Saturday I am grateful for.....Kindness.
1. Last week Sam and Eli were invited to a birthday party. As twins they normally get one invitation to share as the invite. When this happens I find they are often treated as 'one' and it can cause a little trouble working out who gets to hold the invitation etc. For this party, I was delighted that the mother of the little girl having the party went out of her way to make an invite for both Sam and Eli. She even went the extra mile to make them different and unique. I was touched by her kindness and caring concern for my boys and appreciated that her efforts made my life just that little easier for the day.
2. For good friends who took the time to listen to my ramblings and rantings over a little personal drama that happened in our house this week. I am grateful that they showered me with kind words, uplifted me and gave me the strength to continue on.
3. For my husband, who even though we had plans for last night, gave them up at the last minute so that I could go out and attend an event that I really wanted to see and participate in. I am grateful that he gives me wings to fly and does not restrict me in my personal growth and creative desires.
4. For my children, who every so often can see when I am worn out and downright exhausted and offer to carry some of my load. They try their best to help me out and make me feel better. I am grateful for the little massages, the hugs, the salad making and the boldness they have in dragging me off to bed for some rest.
