I've been feeling rather under appreciated lately and then I am reminded that I matter in little ways:
A mom at work thanked me for writing a simple note on a daily sheet reminding her about a sack lunch being needed. She would have forgotten otherwise but my note helped her and made her day smoother.
My daughter is on spring break this week and wanted to help mom out by working at preparing dinner for the family. I helped some but she did quite a lot of it...and it was good! Thanks to the firstborn for her help tonight! I appreciate our wanting to help me by doing something I normally do!
The husband made the bed for me, I had taken off the sheets this morning and hadn't yet made the bed and he helped me out by putting the fresh sheet on, new pillowcases, and other things just because he loves me! I'm looking forward to sleeping in a clean bed tonight.
The toddler is growing up, I can now peek in his classroom and see him throughout the day and he doesn't cry when I leave. He knows that I am in the building and that I will come and get him when I am done with work and the teachers he is with take good care of him. It makes the day move much more smoothly.
The 10 year old is going to make a cake tonight, I am thankful that the kids are learning how to do more and more things and do them well. I will have to help him but he is capable of doing a lot of it himself! I'm glad he is growing and maturing.
