Three Beautiful Things

1. Liam, sleepy and slow and cuddly in my arms today. Cute as a button. NOW I know what that means.

2. On the way into McDonald's today to meet Jeanette, Daniel and I had to go back to the van to grab something so the boys went ahead. A family met us as we walked across the parking lot and the Mom stopped us and asked "Are those your two boys?" I said yes, and she smiled and said "They are such gentlemen. They held both doors for our family".

3. Josh's 13th birthday and all he wanted to do was go see "Eragon" with his family. He was more than happy with the simple gifts he got, and then with a visit to the second hand bookstore and the new box of pencils from The Paint Spot before the movie. Life is rich.

Did Joshua get my birthday message?

It is good to be reminded to slow down and notice the things that bless us, if we will just pay attention.

How's your back?
