Things that touch your heart!

Just wondering if you have something special that has truly touched your heart recently?  I think it's good to hear positive moments that remind you of your purpose.

here's mine:

My daughter was having a tough day today (she's away at a very very small college town) and the country girls she is rooming with have pretty much shunned her.

Here was her facebook post after I chatted with her via text.  It made my day!

I love how my mom can just change my mood in a blink of an eye! I love her so much. — with Tracy Anderson Allen.

Its so nice when mothers and daughters can be such great friends. I am also blessed w my 2 daughters, but I did not have that with my own mother growing up. My mom is in a different place now in her life and we are very close...patience paid off

I work in a church nursery and I have been at this one for 14 years, and at another church for 11 years.. A while ago I was guarding the half door for pick ups, holding a baby and one crying at my feet and asking another helper to grab another kid on the slide and one of the moms said to me "You will have a special place in heaven"....it made me teary and still does today, I am doing exactly what I am supposed to on sunday mornings. Best paid job there is!

That was so sweet of your dd to say that about you.  It proves you are a great mom.  That makes me so mad those girls are treating your dd like that!  I know a few people that were traumatized by their college experience.  I hope she hangs in there and next year is better!

That is very endearing to have a mom say that to you!  I can imagine that the church with which you work are truly blessed to have you on board!!

I am happy to hear you have a great relationship with your mom!  What a blessing.  It's a dream I always had, but was not to be for me.  My mom died when I was 4 years old.  So, my life has been to be the mom I always dreamed of having, but never had.  I'd like to believe I would say beautiful things about her as my daughter did today.

Blessings to you!

All wonderful things to bring one joy.  They are blessed to have you.  

I too love babies (my grandbaby especially) and animals!!!  I love love animals, they bring great joy as well.

It was sweet, and you can imagine how I want to zip right over there, and charm those mean girls right out of their nasty ways.  But, I pray my daughter will also learn how to rise above even in the most difficult circumstances.  Heaven knows, I try to practice that every day.

Have a Beautiful Wednesday!  :)
