Buuuut, I've been able to do things for the NPN's behind us today and recently, things that really help them out and that make me smile just to do them for someone. And, the lady at Nathan's school who I know from work and whatnot, well I'm going to have an opportunity to help her out of a bind too. I had offered, since the kids are in the same class and because it's my nature, to pick her boy up if she ever got into a jam and needed someone to get him. Well she's having surgery tomorrow and I'll get to take Sean home. Nothing soothes a weary soul like giving a bit to someone else to make their life easier.
***Disclaimer*** I don't mean this to sound conceited or like I'm tooting my own horn. Really I don't. It was just something I thought about and pondered and noticed today. It was weird to discover I missed the giving part of friendship more than any other.
