Hello, friends! How was your weekend? Big hugs to all the mamas out there!
My fondest first Mother’s Day memory (other than just getting to spend it with my Sonny, of course) was definitely plastic brunch. He and I were home alone ’til lunchtime, and I didn’t say a word about the holiday when we woke up, but for some reason, he decided he wanted to make me more “food” after breakfast because he loved me “soooo much”. What a doll baby. I don’t care what Folgers says, the best part of waking up is definitely kissing his spongey cheeks. 😉
We had a pretty rough start last Fall, what with the three of us navigating totally new-to-us waters and all, but boy have we learned a lot about loving each other and leaning on the Lord over the past 9 months. Lately, I feel straight up awed by the gift of prayed-for connectedness, and so, so grateful for a God that doesn’t give us more than He can handle.
And speaking of things that make me smile, I’m reading ‘Love Does‘ by Bob Goff right now. I’ve still got a few chapters to go, but so far, my absolute favorite line in the book is on page 111. It says, “Somehow he made it sound like we were both still counting“.
I underlined it because the author did one of my absolute favorite things there. He figured out a really beautiful way to describe something I love so much about certain people.
You’ll probably need to read the previous page to really appreciate what he said:
Do you see what he did there now? How he made us feel about the storekeeper by revealing how the storekeeper would want us to feel about us? So endearing!
I also love the next line. “When he was done, I’d look into his eyes to see if I had enough“. What a sweet visual. Can’t you just picture young Bob, head still tilted down, while only his hopeful eyes move up to see if there’s candy on the way? Good stuff. 🙂
Have you underlined something great lately? I’d love to hear about it in the comment section if you have!
