I saw this on Pinterest this morning. While my kids don’t have wee little hands anymore, it is the perfect prayer for this insomniac mom.
Thought I would share this with you. It may be words you need to hear too.
Random Acts of Kindness… I witnessed an act of kindness last week, and I’m still thinking about it. My Hubby and I were walking in to the grocery store and there was a lady from Salvation Army ringing her bell for donations out in the cold. The man walking ahead of us not only put some money in the bucket, he proceeded to ask her if he could buy her a cup of coffee, from the Starbucks inside, to help keep her warm.
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward,
safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.

Some days you need a gentle reminder that life can and should be simple, and the joys in life are the little things… like flying saucers.
My son is what you call a “gamer”. He’s really good at it, and all his friends play. Last night was the release of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 and his super hero dad took him to Best Buy at 12:01 am to pick up the “deluxe” game package he ordered. The game came with extra goodies, including a flying saucer. (It has a sophisticated flying machine name, but at the moment it’s beyond me. I’m just the gamer’s Mom.)
After school today, we took the remote control flying thing outside to give it a try. And guess what?? It was fun! My son and I were laughing and flying, and occasionally ducking and running out of the way, but we had a blast. My whole day was spent being blah and grumpy (from tiredness, lack of sleep) and all it took was watching my son fly a saucer to make me smile. Simple. And joyful.
I’m cleaning my house today. Joy. It’s not one of my strengths, at all. Not even a little. But bathrooms don’t clean themselves. While I’m cleaning the yuckiest rooms in the house, the thought strikes me (AGAIN), why do the grosses rooms in my house not have windows? All three and a half baths in my house are windowless rooms just screaming to be aired out! Seriously!? In what world is a bathroom, with no source of fresh air, a good idea??
So answer me this… What would you change or do over if you could rebuild your house?
I love my house, but if I could do one thing over I would definitely make sure all the bathrooms have windows. The kind that opens up! 😉
What would you change?
