Happy Friday! I have been dying for the weekend. It's been a long week and I feel like my patience is running on fumes. It looks like another of McKinlee's molars is coming in and she has had a few accidents this week which is really frustrating (but understandable). I'm just excited to have some husband support this weekend ;)
A few days after his first surgery, I dug out some art supplies and let M go to town. She is obsessed with stickers and once I showed her the stamp she went a little crazy. I glued on some hearts and wrote a note to my grandma and one to my mom on the back of McKinlee's artwork. We put it in a cute envelope and sent it out that afternoon. This wasn't a huge project and it took less than a half hour, but I know it lifted some spirits at the hospital.
Grandpa is getting better each day. He's still in the hospital with new problems that pop up, but they all appear to be fixable so far. My mom finally flew back home for a little bit and things seem to be settling down. I'm sure my grandpa will be back to shooting his guns and planting his garden soon enough :)
With it being early on in 2015, goals are still fresh on my mind. Something that I have thought about a lot lately is service and bringing joy to those around us. When I take a minute to think about what service I've done lately, I'm amazed at how consumed I am in my own life. Being pregnant with a toddler is hard work, but thinking of others doesn't have to add stress- it can actually be a relief of the crazy hectic life we have! I've met with some other lovely bloggers who share the same feelings on the topic. Go check out what they did to put a smile on someone's face, then let me know if you have any fun things that you like to do for others. I know it's after Valentine's Day, but let's keep spreading the love!
