It cracks me up that it is really the little things in life that matter.
Every day, I feel like I do a million things for my family and for others too. I cook great meals, I keep the house spic and span, I run the kids around like crazy all day, I volunteer so much I should sit on my hands when people are looking for helpers......you know how it is.
But really, while those things are great, it can be even more simple.
Last night, I put the kids dinner on the table, realized we had no milk because I hadn't been to the store in three days, and I took a frozen can of Minute Maid Orange Juice from the freezer. As I was getting out the pitcher, Matthew said "Hey Mom, is that the kind of orange juice you make yourself?"
"Yup." I said.
People, it was like these kids just won the lottery.
"Yahoo! Yeah! That is our FAVORITE!"
Matthew even said "Mom, you are the best mother ever! I just love you!"
All this for making a can of frozen oj. Who knew!
