Sunshine Sunday - Mothers, Spring, and Our Garbage Man

I have so much to be grateful for today.  I feel like I could go on and on. 

First off, I'm grateful for my mom.  She is an amazing woman.  She carried me for 10 months.  (Yeah, I was a month overdue.  Yikes.)  She taught me all about decorating as she toted me around to wallpapers store as a child.  She taught me to believe in myself.  She taught me how important the role of a mother is.  She taught me to love the gospel of Jesus Christ.  She is my cheerleader.  Thanks for everything, Mom!  (This is her on a hike we took this week.)

I am also thankful for my mother-in-law, who is one of the most thoughtful people I know.  I feel so lucky to have married into such a wonderful family.

I am grateful for spring this week because I think it finally arrived!  That means it's time for squirt guns....

...and climbing...

...and little bare feet....

....and shorts....

...and hiking!  I am thrilled.

Lastly, I had something happen this week that made me so happy.  Rex has been a fan of the garbage truck for years now.  We've lived in this home for 2.5 years and almost every Wednesday we run outside to watch the garbage man.  We wave.  Rex does the honk-your-horn gesture.  Both of the garbage men have come to know us fairly well.  We even gave them treats at Christmas. 

Anyhow, so we missed the garbage man this week and later that day I headed out to bring the cans in.  I noticed something was attached to one of the cans.  It was a brand new hat with the garbage truck logo on it just for Rex.  It honestly made my month.  I was so impressed that he would be so kind.  Rex was really excited.  Here he is modeling it for you.  It's a little big, but it makes me smile everytime I see it.  It's amazing how much one small act can do.  I was so touched.

It was a great week.  What were you grateful for this week?

Thanks for reading.
