The Joy Is In The Little Things

It is little things like this that make up for the fact that, as a mom, I get no financial rewards...no sick time...no paid time off... 

It is little things like this that warm up my heart on days like today, when I am still in bed.

It is little things like this make all the frustrations and the tears somehow...worth it.



Dear Mom,
I hope you get well soon, I really like it when you are not sick, because you can be really happy, and not feeling sad. I hope you can get well tomorow, so I can see your wounderfull smile, and your cheerfull face! I wouldent feel good if I never see you smile again.  I hope you can sleep well tonight! Just to remind you, you are the best mom in the whole wold, and I love you so much.
love, Joseph

I highly doubt they know how much these little things mean to a mommy heart...but it is little things like this that make me think, for even just a moment, I have done something right.

Looking up as always...

Oh my goodness, that is so sweet. What a blessing!!! You are well loved, Bina!!

I'm praying for the healthy angel to sprinkle good health all over you and your family, so they don't catch what you're fighting.

Bina @ Bina's Pad said...

Thank you all for your kind words...

First of all, I think my son is the best alive...but I am sure that most of you would try to argue that point, so I will concede that he is the best son alive for ME. :)

Second, I am feeling ever so much better tonight...as I should after having three days straight laying in bed, or so my hubby says. ha ha

Much love to you all tonight!
Bina

How precious. You're right--it's the little things that keep us going...especially on those days when we're sick or want to pull our hair out for a hundred different reasons. I hope you feel better soon.
