Sick Children, Cookies, And Perspective

Jason....bless his sweet heart.

Jason has his hands full with me.


My erratic moods would break the strongest of men...not J...he just smiles, gives me a hug and tells me I am loved.

Today my somber mood continued on, ugh! I am starting to annoy the ever loving shit out of my own self!
I wanted to just have a pout and be an introvert all night but my friend Amanda, a few weeks ago, had planned for a group of us to go to the Ronald McDonald House tonight and bake cookies for the families there.


Nothing, and I mean NOTHING is a better mood cleaner and perspective re-a-liner than a room full of sick kids/babies and their families.

When I am making cookies and a mom comes up to us (while holding her VERY tiny baby who is unwell) and says "Thank you" and is grateful for me....

My stupid little problems just vanished into thin air, my heart softened, my anger vanished and I felt humbled beyond measure.

Thank you Amanda. Nothing clears my mind and heart like service.



Today:

I am grateful for healthy children.

I am grateful for Jason and his never ending kindness, patience and rock solid support.

I am grateful for creative energy and refocus.
