Simple Act of Service

Most of my summer break has been spent getting ready for the upcoming school year. School is pretty much all I know how to do. It is what I eat, breath, and sleep.

A large portion of this prep work has been creating file folder games. Dozens and dozens of them. They take FOREVER.

I'm going to start working in my classroom this week, so I made a goal to finish my file folder games by today. It was a lofty and pretty unrealistic goal. I finished coloring everything yesterday, but I still had a rather hefty stack of papers that needed to be cut and glued. Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to more than half of the work completed by my sweet husband who stayed up till who knows how late just to help me out. Suddenly my goal is not so lofty and unrealistic.

It's the little things in life that let us know we are loved. :) I'm grateful for a man in my life who cares so deeply about me, who gives with no expectations of anything in return, who sacrifices his own time just to see me smile. I love you, Nathan!
