...the little things you say.
We had our taxes done last Friday. With all we're juggling and with all the life changes the last few years, we decided to use a friend who's a CPA to do our taxes. He also happens to do the books for DaHubby's employer so he has intimate knowledge of what kind of financial roller coaster we've been dealing with.
Anyway, as the nerd in the family, I was assigned the task of finding and delivering all the appropriate paperwork to said CPA. And, he said two small things that simply lifted all the discouragement and negative feelings I was having last week about our current financial situation.
"I'm just so impressed by you two"
"I don't know how you guys are managing but you're doing great."
Those 2 sentences - probably said with little awareness of their impact - changed my whole perspective.
Last week, in a fit of desperation and find some peace and cooperation from Flicka who was mightily peeved by the constant, ongoing attention to Pojke, I told Flicka something I should have told her years ago.
"Ya know what, baby? You know what you are? You are Momma's miracle. No matter what happens, you are Momma's miracle."
And, ya know what? She's been a dream to be around ever since. What made the difference? Those four little words and having me repeat it to her each day since.
So, today I am more than aware of every word coming out of my mouth.
So, what are you saying to those around you? Is what you're speaking over your kids, your hubby your family, your friends something that is going to bless them?
