I was already in love. But then I opened it and saw this:
Something awesome happened. Last night my Mom and I had a little project in the "big city" (if you will), and I was gone for the evening. When I got home, the house was quiet, the children were in bed asleep, and The Double B was listening to his book on tape. It was rather peaceful, as a matter of fact. So after kissing the honey "hello" I went to the kitchen to straighten up for the night -- the only way I am ever successful as a homemaker is if I stick to this ritual. Otherwise we live in a tornado. So I finished loading the dishwasher, started picking things up off the floor and I found this:
I'll just give you a moment, I know you need it.
Is your heart warmed? I know mine is.
Being a Mom is the best.
Kaje is such a sweet, tender little boy. I'm blessed!
Ah, my heart is still all warm and fuzzy even this morning, as he's off to school practicing the alphabet and enjoying drug-free week, Livi is watching Peter Pan, and I'm participating in my daily dose of therapy.
So, being all warm and fuzzy, I have decided to do my first ever (and maybe only ever, who knows) Give Away! And since it's my give away, I decided to give something that I love more then squeeky cheese. It is my favorite music CD, and I think you'll love it, too. In fact, it is the very CD I mentioned in my post yesterday (hence the idear). It's inspirational but not denominational and not preachy -- just beautiful and (second time I'm going to use this word) inspiring. I love it! I love the way it makes me feel when I listen to it. It. is. my. very. favorite.
