A few things lately that have touched my heart:
-Evaleigh wants to sing Avett a song before bed every night, she always chooses I am a Child of God and she knows every word. She stands by his bed side and softly strokes his head. She refuses to let me sing along.
-Avett has gotten particularly great at sharing. If there is a conflict for the most part all I have to do is ask the kids to have "a conversation" about it and then they work it out. Avett is such a humble little guy he is usually the one to give in and make peace.
-Evaleigh loves to "give service" around the house. Today I told her she could help me do laundry and I left to go to the bathroom. When I came back to the living room she had carried all of the clean laundry from the laundry room and piled it on the floor. She loves to remind me with a huge smile and wide bright eyes, "Mom! Thats giving service!"
-Both of my children are loving and affectionate. They love to hug and kiss and Evie loves to ask to tell me a whisper. Usually it is, "I love you." Or "You are a sweet mom."
I'm honored to get to do this job and I'm so thankful for the times these kids make me laugh or feel proud. It's such a reward for all of the hard times.
