I have a terrible head cold. Usually, when I am sick, the house tends to fall apart. While I admittedly did eat Thai takeout for dinner and only got through half of my pile of laundry (Wednesday is Wash Day!), most of the toys are picked up, most of the dishes are washed, and the Little Ones are all tucked in to bed. In other words, everything is as it usually is at the end of the day. After dinner this evening, I was ensconced on the couch and my little David came over to me and covered me with a green blanket…”because green is your favorite color, Mommy.” He then went to the video cabinet and pulled out the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice and put it on. Elisabeth asked if I would like a glass of water, and would I like her to turn out the lights? What a difference having children old enough to do such things! And all without asking! Their thoughtfulness was such a blessing to me, once again reminding me that I am not wasting my time as I attempt to diligently and faithfully instill ideas and inspiration in little hearts and minds.
