was full of small blessings. Not the big knock -your-socks-off kind but little things that if you pay attention, make you smile and grateful. A friend of mine is blogging about Days of Grace and though I didn’t plan it when I sat down to write, I suppose this is something similiar.
Snippets of things that made me happy today.
D4 and I were coloring and she asked me to draw our family. She decided to draw me (I’m a great blue oval) but then she added arms and said, “Here are your arms so you can hug me.” And so I did.
Later we were cuddling on the couch and watching Wow Wow Wubbsy, she sighed and said, “I love me and you.” I hugged her tighter and just said, “me too.” And I do.
OB has been bringing his friends home after school since school began. This is the IT house. And let me tell you, boys multiply noise and activity exponentially. Three boys don’t just make three times as much noise as one; its three to the power of three. Lately, it’s been a struggle to get him to finish his homework. I walked past his room this afternoon (the door was shut) and heard him say, “No, let’s do our homework first.” I would have gone in and hugged him if it wouldn’t have embarrassed him half to death. I hugged him later.
Tonight, for family night we played Yahtzee. It was D2’s turn to pick the activity and she picked Yahtzee because she knows I love it. D3 rolled three Yahtzee’s. Yes three! Being the second to the smallest has its draw backs; it was nice to see her first when I didn’t have to pull any strings to get her there.
Oh yeah, we’ll hear about that one for weeks and weeks. : )
