Give and you shall receive.
Isn't that SO true! I can get so wrapped up in my SELF that I sometimes forget that...but when you GIVE to friends, neighbors, family, strangers, etc. it always comes back in some way whether it be warm fuzzies, fond memories, or a ROCK?!
Jay came home from school Monday and as we were sitting at the kitchen table eating a snack he got a BIG smile on his face and his little expression that says "I just remembered something!". He reached into his little pocket and pulled out a ROCK. He said, "Mommy, I found this rock on the sidewalk today at recess. I hid it in my pocket, took it to the bathroom with me. I washed it off with soap and dried it off and put it back in my pocket for you!"
Don't even get me started how happy this made me that my sweet boy was thinking of me. That simple rock placed on my desk makes me smile all throughout my day.
We've both been brave throughout this first week of school, but I think somehow he knew I needed my own little treat that said, "I'm thinking of you."
