Okay -- I'm totally stealing from my friend Meaghan - but really, I'd like to start posts like this.
Yesterday was an absolutely unbelievable day. One of my daycare moms did something amazing for me. Though I call her a "daycare mom" she is most certainly someone that I call a friend too (although we never really talk outside of the drop off/pick up times). I am so grateful to have someone so special in my life.
She comes in the morning, bringing me my chosen son for the day. In her hand is a box. We had just finished having a conversation on my dayhome fanpage about Eric Carle books, and I also noted her facebook status regarding shopping at Indigo. So...I assume that it's a little gift of Eric Carle board books. She says to me "Open in, but not until I leave."
I take my chosen son down to my chosen daughters and son and say "O's mom brought us a gift! Let's all open it!" Everyone takes turns ripping off a piece of paper -- what do I find?? Most certainly NOT Eric Carle Board Books --- nope, it's a Sony Reader.
It's not often that someone hears (or reads) something that you say, remembers it and then goes out of their way to get that thing for you. I had mentioned on Facebook sometime last week that I wanted to buy a Kindle (same thing as a sony reader, except it only takes Amazon E-books)...She went and called her husband and the two of them conspired to buy me something amazing.
I am so grateful and am still having a little bit of trouble accepting this. I am not one who regularly shows my emotions. I don't like to cry in front of others, but I cried when I called her to thank her, and I'm beginning to get that lump in my throat again just writing about this.
Thank you again...
Now -- just a list of some of the other things that I'm grateful for:
- 2 assignments handed in to that hard*** teacher...both got an A!
- kind words from good friends
- my thoughtful husband
- my wonderful children
