Today, I'm thankful for unexpected messages. On Sunday morning, as I was making breakfast, I noticed that the paper towel roll was empty. I picked up a new roll, loaded it on the dispenser, and was greeted with this message.
Cute, isn't it?
Now, this may not seem like a big deal to you, but it was a huge deal to me. You see, I am a mommy's girl. From the moment I was born, I was inseparable from my mom. I even had a difficult time going to school because I wanted to be home hanging out with her. I eventually grew out of that phase (even if it wasn't until sixth grade), and our relationship turned from one of mom/daughter to best friends. When I say that my mom is one of my best friends, I honestly mean it.
The husband and I never lived together before we got married, and I had never lived on my own. My first night in our house, I cried. Even though I'm only forty minutes away from home, I felt like it was hours. After many discussions with my mom, she told me that it took her almost a year before she felt like she adjusted to life with my dad.
I couldn't even imagine an entire year of up and down emotions, but here I am, a little more than a year later, and I am adjusted. I finally feel like my home is truly my "home sweet home" and I love being there. I'm just lucky that I had a very supportive husband who loved me through all of the emotional craziness.
Seeing that little message on the paper towel really made me smile. I'm thankful for it for sure!
Speaking of unexpected messages....
On my birthday, my brother and sister-in-law gave me a card from my nine month old nephew. They held the pen in his hand and signed his name. I'll be keeping this card forever. I cherish the little writing, even though my brother was holding his hand to do it. I love my nephew, and am so smitten with the little guy!
I don't think I'll be taking down this card any time soon!
On a side note, I'm taking off from work the week between Christmas and New Year's. I'm not sure how my blogging will be, but I'm hoping it's not too sporadic. If anyone is interested in doing a guest post, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Question of the Day:
What are you thankful for today?
Until next time!
