Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

6 Things That Make Me Happy

I was tagged by the beautiful MERE.. to write down 6 things that make me happy!!
So here it goes...

1) To those that read my blog AND leave me a comment.. that makes me HAPPY! and I appreciate it.

2) Fall and the cool air.. that makes me HAPPY!

3) Seeing my kids faces each and every morning... that makes me HAPPY!

4)A clean and organized home... that makes me HAPPY!

5) An unexpected phone call from a friend whose just calling to say 'hello'.. that makes me HAPPY!

6) the little conversation I had with my son today...
Me:.. hey bud.. guess what?
Bud:.. what?
Me:.. I probably have to go to work full-time
Bud: Why?
Me:.. cause dad's pay was cut and I have to help out with bills and stuff
Bud:.. Great.. whose going to keep the house clean? Whose going to cook my meals? Mom.. nothing is going to be able to replace you...

Ha Ha Ha... that makes me HAPPY! to know I'm irreplaceable! So when my home becomes a pigsty.... and I complain.. please remind me of this conversation!!

WOW:) Austyn is so funny! I often think of going back to work, but after child care costs, gas, etc I would be making about $200 less a week then I am now. Not really worth it! I guess I will have to wait until Lani is in school.

I hear ya. I am sorry that you won't be around the house so much for your kids, but maybe it will just be for a short time. It is nice to know you are irreplacable! What kind of work are you hoping to find?

Sometimes it is just the greatest thing you can hear from a child's mouth...that you are needed and loved. I am sorry to hear about your hubby's pay cut. What kind of work do you do?

Christina said...

What a sweet moment with your son! It is good when family realizes how much you contribute. God will honor your efforts to help your family. Take heart. Thanks for the comment about my family get togethers. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Maybe God will do a miracle for you in that area, too!
