Sometimes I forget to slow down and appreciate the fact that I have forgiving people in my lives. I really need to take stock and do that more often.
Obviously by my lack of writing you know I've been swamped. If I don't blog, I'm either dead ill or completely overwhelmed. It is essential to my well being to dump my thoughts on paper (okay, screen). So if it isn't happening - come looking for me! This is me right now:
I'm giving some props to my biggest supporters who during my busiest times step up immensely.
First off, the little guy. Man, he's an awesome kid. I absolutely love the morning dance we have perfected between one another. He knows by my tone exactly what kind of mood I am and constantly adjusts accordingly. I always claim he is inflexible but emotionally he really isn't.
Case in point - this morning was a bear. I woke up tired. I usually don't do that, so it isn't a good sign when it happens. He is off school for the next two days and as we head towards his Granny's house, he quietly watched me.
I sat silent. Even after coffee. A LOT of coffee. I was focused on the road and completely unable to speak.
And my buddy, who talks 24/7 and never stops making noises in between, silently rubbed my arm. He didn't say a word. He knew.
As we got closer, he quietly said "Momma, you are really busy lately. I hope that gets better soon."
Yep... he's a keeper.
Hubs is constantly forgiving me, especially during my crazy busy schedule. I forget to buy milk, or laundry soap, for DAYS. And it magically shows up. I forget and/or lose stuff constantly: my keys, my phone, my shoes. It's ridiculous. And he is usually standing behind me handing them to me.
It's those unspoken moments that I dearly love the most. When someone just gets you.
My older kids get it, too. They totally understand when I can't pick up the phone... or when I do and I'm a bit grumpy. They adjust accordingly and love me more.
A girl couldn't ask for more.
As this weekend FINALLY gets here, I have a ton to celebrate. My people get me. Thank God - I'm not so sure the rest of the world necessarily does most days.
Have a great Thursday, friends!
