I had a rough patch a few weeks ago.
My husband’s grandma died after a long illness.
Work was stressful for more than one reason.
My blog got hacked and it took a lot of days and a lot of money to fix it.
There was drama on my son’s baseball team.
But in the midst of all that we celebrated Will’s 10th birthday, which was joyful. And there were two small incidents that came out of his birthday celebration that I will treasure forever.
These are the little things in parenting that just make my heart sing.
She told me she drew the green robot on the card because she thought he might like robots better than flowers.
Cue heart melting!
Second, there was this note that Will placed on our bed one night. The words he wrote touched my heart.
So when life gets you down, remember that your kids can always lift you up.
I’ll be back to my usual sarcastic self momentarily. Thanks for letting me share a snippet of my parenting joy!
