Things that warmed my heart today!
A few things happened today that I just needed to sit at the computer and write about!

Our oldest is home from college on Spring Break and I just LOVE having him home!!
Like he's always done his entire life, he comes and finds me many times throughout the day just to give me a hug, say hey, how ya doing, is there anything I can do to help you today, etc. 
We were coming back from the gym (which thankfully he dragged me to) and I told him how incredibly proud I am of him and just like he used to do when he was 2 - he rested his head on my shoulder and told me he loved me. When he was 2 it was my lap or chest as I held him but it felt just the same! FLOODS of emotions rolled over me and I could feel my eyes start to swell ~ I held the tears in ~ didn't want him to think I'm emotional ~ hehehehe ~ Just made me smile from the inside out!! A small but oh so wonderful moment for this mom!

Today at his dentist appt. (I know he can drive there himself)  but I decided to tag along and I'm so glad that I did.

As we were sitting there one of the hygenist called a patient back - saw us and greeted us by our first names and then she said...I worked on your husbands mouth yesterday....he is so sweet! I looked at my son and he was just smiling - you could see the pride and probably a few sarcastic comments - my boys think their dad could talk to anyone and does.  :)

Melted my heart to hear her say that and then the ladies behind the counter said ~ he is always so nice and happy - is he always like that to which I replied just about every day! He is really!

They went on to say he is so nice and polite and you feel like you've known him your whole life in the short amount of time he is here. I can relate. We met in April 1990 and legally got married in July 1990 and then church wedding in Sept. 1990.  23 years this year ~ he treated me like his bride 23 years ago and to this day he still does!

I sat there and was flooded with memories of my friends throughout the years telling me what an incredible husband I have ~ so good with our boys, so organized, and such a clean freak and could they borrow him for a day!
I sat there feeling and knowing how incredibly blessed I am that my husband is such a NICE and well liked guy!
He doesn't let much get him down. He doesn't let things affect him like I do and is able to let things roll off his back and move on and not let it ruin his day. I've tried to learn that lesson but still fail at it miserably. He VERY RARELY has a bad day - ever.
Sorry - just had to gush on him!! He is my everything!

Then the hygenist called Austin back and here I was again ~ proud momma grinning from ear to ear as I heard - yes ma'ams and thank you's and chatter chatter chatter about college and his upcoming trip to Peru in the summer, etc. etc. etc. 
This used to be our SHY son that didn't really talk a lot to people he didn't know.
Again, melted my heart and I'm sure I sat there with a cheesy grin on my face the rest of the time he was back in the chair ~ feeling extremely BLESSED that I get to be mom to these three amazing sons of mine and wife to such an awesome man!

Sandy, I can so relate to your post. It reminded me of so many times I've experience those same conversations, thoughts and emotions. It is wonderful having adult children and the memories of them when they were very young as well as the stability and love of a soul mate - 35 years for us in June! Though you and I have led very different lives, we are both very blessed and humbled by those blessings. So many times I think we are sisters from different mothers. :-) I love you, my sweet friend and am so thankful to have you in my life. <3 Kim
