Things That Make Me Smile 1/12/13

It's been another week with many ups and downs. We've been admitted to the hospital, sent home, and re-admitted the next day. As I sit here and watch Leighton rock our baby boy as he's hooked to multiple wires and lines while he's getting treatment, I'm reflecting on not the downs, but the ups of the week. Here are a few that stand out.

1. Alyssa: "I only know 3 things about Jesus: that He died on the cross for our sins, He rose again, and He loves people."

2. Zac: "May I have a piece of candy?"
Me: "Yes."
Zac, giving me a big hug: "You are a sweetheart."

3. A teenage boy came to the house looking to be hired for miscellaneous jobs to raise money for treatment for his father who was just diagnosed with leukemia. I gave him a garbage bag full of pop cans to return for the deposits. As he was walking away, Jake looked out the window and asked, "Who was that?" Alyssa answered, "Garbage guy."

4. Zac, about his breath outside in the cold van: "What's all this smoke in my seat?"

5. Zac, because Tyler was crying: "I think he wants a Kit Kat."

6. Jake: "Do lakes really have those hot dog things (aka cattails) growing out of them?"

7. Zac, smelling my perfume: "Mmm, that smells soft."

8. Zac, while looking for his Blue Pillow: "Don't worry. I'm pretty sure I can find it really fast."

9. Zac tried to open our front door, but couldn't. My mom walked over and opened it. Zac told her, "Wow, you are strong to open that door!"

10. Alyssa: "I love my fuzzy pony tails. They keep my hair nice and cozy."

11. Zac: "I love you."

Me: "I love you."

Zac: "Yeah, we love each other."

What made you smile this week?
