My friends, oh man my friends. They are awesome. I love the people that have been brought into my life. People that have stayed close for years and even those who were there for a glimpse and left an impression on my heart and will always remain in my memories.
But there are little, not extraordinary things, but simple treasures in life that I do enjoy and I am so thankful for. Things like yummy coffee drinks. A tasty latte from any coffee shop can always give me a perfect pick me up when I need it.
umm has anyone else tried the salted caramel mocha from Starbucks? yum. but only for a very special treat
The Wonder Years on instant watch through Netflix. I have been asking for this DVD set since our first year of marriage, but due to licensing mumbo jumbo it never was released and now here it is at just a click of a button away. This show is pure nostalgia for me and kind of brings me back to my happy childhood days. (please note, we don't have TV and I'm not a big show/movie watcher, so understand this being available to watch literally had me jumping up and down with happy tears in my eyes)
But right now at this moment I'm beyond thankful for my mom. Even after spending her morning having her pre-op done for her upcoming gallbladder surgery next week she came over (with discomfort and pain) to watch Elsie while I took care of Vernon who has had a fever of 104 degrees on and off for the last 24 hours due to a viral infection. Poor little guy has been so uncomfortable and weepy it just breaks your heart. She was a major life savor and Elsie was so excited to have her here while I rocked her baby brother in the back room.
...and yes I posted this while my sweet sick boy fell asleep on my chest.
