I sat down exhausted this evening. My husband asked what was wrong. "Nothing," I said, "I just don't feel like I got enough accomplished today." He hugged me and told me he knew I did more than I realized. It was so encouraging to know that someone recognized my efforts.
My goal for tomorrow is to show as many people as I can that I recognize their efforts in some way.
Today I was trying to comfort my son and accidentally banged his elbow on the table as I sat him down. Sometimes I wonder how my children will survive with my accident-prone genetics. :) Check out my post on the genetics of clumsiness and the reminder to slow down sometimes.
Taking down the Christmas decorations always leaves my house feeling cold. Today I tried something new with an old sign and some of the flowers I usually on use in the fall. I think it turned out nice and definitely warmed my heart to give the space a new look.
visiting my husband's grandma and taking her some flowers is not something new. This week I gave money to my daughter and son and told them to pick out the flowers. It was up to them to work together to pick something out, keep under their budget, and purchase the gift for Grandma. They did a terrific job! It felt good to give them a chance to be independent and take pride in doing something nice for someone else.
It's time for trying new things! Let one of those new experiences be providing yourself with the chance to win the January Great Giveaway from 29 Gifts.
