Day 9: Giving

In the past three days, my darling toddler has managed to lose my wedding band, and now my camera battery AND the charger. The latter, at least, I'm confident will turn up. The ring, not so much.

So today's picture is brought to you by cell phone, and not very good cell phone at that. (Someone needs to tell me it'll be okay. My beautiful, amazing, adorable children are really, really on my nerves this past week. They both refuse to nap. At all. My wedding ring is gone.)

But I have this sign on my wall. It's hanging kind of oddly off of...I don't know, the mount you hang a wall phone on? because I've been too lazy/distracted/forgetful/apathetic to hang it up properly. But I kind of like it where it is, because it's right in the hallway going from the bedrooms to the living room, and I go up and down that hallway many times a day. Which means that I see this sign a lot, and because it hangs at such a haphazard angle, I do actually look at it almost every time. And read it. And remember.

I remember that my kids love me. They do, even if they do horrible, awful things all day long and scream at me. ;) 

I remember my husband loves me. And I love him, and my horrible, awful, adorable, beautiful, amazing babies.

I remember to breathe.

I remember to keep giving. Giving my time, my energy, my sanity sometimes. Giving my patience. Giving my love.

"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
