I wanted to share with you something I thought up to do for my kids... everyday...
before they go to school.
Every night, while they are sleeping, I am going to put a post it note, or something of that nature where they can see it, with a word, phrase, loving thought, or one thing they did that day to make
the world a better place, or that made me proud or some other good emotion.
I went out and bought 300 index cards, and tonight, and tomorrow I am going to start writing down my favorite phrases, words, or scriptures on them so I have an arsenal of them to start off with.
Of course, I won't write them all out... because they may do something incredibly sweet one day and I'll have ammo for the index card then.
The bottom of each and every card will say...
I love you up to God and around the world infinity times... Be blessed today my son.
After hearing about John Travolta's son's death, I started wondering... in their unspeakable grief... are they wondering what the last thing they said to him was? I so feel for anyone grieving the loss of a child. It really hit home.
I yelled and said some not so nice things to one of my boys tonight, and I felt so incredibly ashamed immediately afterward... I apologized right away... but it didn't feel like enough.
I express myself so much better in the written word than I do in person, so I came up with
this little way of showing them in writing, so they can see it all day, that no matter what I say or do or what they say or do... nothing will ever shake my love for them.
On another subject... I FREAKING LOVE THAT DANG Wii!
I so hate to admit it... BUT I DO!
"I" actually love it... for ME!!!
I got a great workout today playing tennis for 1/2 hour!
We've all bowled as a family, played baseball, and golfed together too!
I don't play the Mario or the other games with the wii steering wheels... too techie for me...
but I love the Wiimotes!
I'm going to go look up Wii Fit now and see about getting it!
Who knew... me... liking a video game console...
There IS a God!
