true love, latte-style

I was feeling particularly blue this morning.

Maybe it was the rain. Or my self-imposed to-do list. Or the fact that I didn't spend time with my bible and Jesus before dragging myself out of bed. Whatever it was, I was a grump. I muttered goodbye to my confused husband and left the house in a humph. The grumbly clouds and drippy rain matched my mood perfectly.

An hour later, I was sitting in my office, telling my coworker {hi Rochelle!} that I really, really hoped Marty would bring me a latte, gosh darn it. {Because, you know, I totally deserved one, after my crabby-pants routine at 7am...}

Literally ten seconds later, Marty popped his head in, with this in his hands:

My grumpy, ornery mood is gone. Instead, I'm more aware of my silly selfishness, my husband's unconditional love for his quirky-crabby wife, and the greater picture of Grace that it represents.

I'm also asking myself, How can I bless someone else today, regardless of how they're acting?

Have a happy weekend. Make someone smile. :)


{p.s. My photo-editing computer monitor is down for the count, but once it's up and running, I've got a few sweet pictures to show you of some lovely little ladies... stay tuned!}
