It's the little things that mean so much...

This semester is KILLING me....I feel like I am failing in all areas of my life just trying to keep up with my school work.  I guess that is why I am noticing the little things and appreciating them so much more.  Here are some of the latest..

Finding that the dishwasher has been emptied or loaded.

Coming home from school in the morning and finding my bed already made.

Friends that ask how school is going....and who listen to me whine.

A kitty who wants to sit on my lap while I study all day.

Children who understand what it means when mom has to study for a test.

A husband who will take the boys to work with him (when they are off track- which I SWEAR they always are off!) so that I can have quiet in the house.

A test that gets put off my an instructor for a day or two for whatever reason- I'll take it!

A message on Face Book from one of the kids in my Sunday School class telling me how much they appreciate the time I put into my lessons.

And speaking of that, having late church.  That is seriously saving my behind- it gives me just that much more time to 'polish' up my lessons that have been seriously put off until the last minute.

A daughter who volunteers to make dinner.

A husband who offers to make a milk run so that I don't have to.

A text or a phone call from friends who have been there.  Just checking in to see if I'm still alive.

I could go on and on!  What I am trying to say is that I am so blessed to have such a patient and understanding family who are really dealing with me being in school so much better than I am- and that I truly have some of the greatest friends out there!

  1. Oh my gosh that is so cool about one of the kids in your Sunday School class contacting you on face book. It's so nice to feel appreciated like that. I'm sure you are making a big difference in their lives with your lessons. That is just the kind of person that you are!
