"Children are an inheritance from the LORD. They are a reward from him."
This morning as I was getting out of the shower I heard a knock on the door I thought, "Ohh great they got Carly out of bed and now I am really behind." I quickly got dressed and to my surprise they had breakfast in bed for me. This is something they love to do. It just melted my heart! I have really been drilling my kids about being selfless vs selfish and the difference between needs vs wants. I think sometimes I forget that they are 7 and 9 and they do pretty good for their age and society we live in.
Well, on to breakfast...Ryan made me cereal which by this time was soggy which in not my favorite, but I ate it with a smile on my face! Joe made me plain toast no butter and I ate it as well. After getting ready I went out to the kitchen and smelled burnt toast....Joe said "Oh, I kinda burnt the first piece." Then I saw the carton of whole milk on the counter.......ugh Ryan put Carly's whole milk on my cereal. I'll be paying for that later, my stomach can't handle stuff like that! But all in all it was wonderful! Soggy Cereal, Dry Toast and Whole Milk from a pure and loving heart I'll take them any day!!! I wouldn't change a thing! What a special Friday morning blessing!
But did you see the Diet Coke in the picture????? Do my boys know me or what? What sweet boys!!!
