With all this stinkin’ cold weather, it got me thinking about the things that warm my heart (now if it moves to my toes, I’ll be thrilled!)
The other day, I was plain ol’ exhausted. I had been home all day with a sicko kid and by the time J got home my grace and long-suffering was, well….suffering. So not only did he draw me up a wonderful hot bubble-bath with my favorite White Tea-Ginger bubbles and matching candles, but he cleaned the tub first. (“He loves me, he truly loves me!”)
This year, we are joining our church in getting presents for kids in the neighborhood schools who probably won’t be getting any this year. We picked 2 boys that are the same ages as our boys. They are more than ready to understand about giving during this season, and it absolutely warms my heart to know they are so excited. They’re actually talking more about that than what they want for Christmas this year. Does a momma’s heart good….
Mum got a clean bill of health last week. This time last year she was finishing up her chemo and still quite weak. It was so much more enjoyable cooking Thanksgiving with her this year. I can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with her in the kitchen, instead of sitting with her on the couch.
Ah…..much better. All warmed up.
