SS Blog Challenge #9

The challenge this week is brought to us by Melissa in Waco.  Here it is:
This week, my challenge to you is to blog one thing, each day, that has brought a smile to your face.  Could be something as simple as the first bloom of spring, a silly comment from a child, or a blessing you've received.  As I read through the prayer requests on SS, many of us are facing what seem to be insurmountable odds.  I've had a hard time recently focusing on the joys in my life & have been letting our problems bring me down.  I'm not suggesting we ignore issues; rather, let's find a piece of joy in each day.

Mike & I, along with 7 other couples at church are taking a Family Relations class.  I love it, it's been fun getting to know the other couples & we're really enjoying ourselves, it's something I look forward to each week.  Of course, Princess Tornado was coughing & couldn't go into the nursery, so Mike & I had her with us.  At the beginning of the lesson, we were told to be thinking about an attribute that we admired about our spouse, we were going to share later.  I knew right away what I was going to say about Prince Charming.  During the class, P Tornado,  started getting bored, so I kept her out in the "hallway" (copy room) & just kind of peeked my head in to hear what was going on.  So, we go around, I said my part, & then it's M's turn.  I was SCARED!  I had NO  clue what he would say.  He surprised me, without even stopping to think, he answered "I admire her patience".  I seriously, thought I was going to fall over!  I am NOT a patient person, not even a little bit.  He went on to say that he loves & admires that I stay home & take care of 4 children all day & also take care of him too.  He feels like most of the time, he's my 5th child.  He said a little more but that was the gist of it.  It just made me smile & feel good.    So today, my Prince Charming gave me a huge compliment & for that, has made my day!
