Going the Extra Mile

Today, while at work, I texted my two youngest and suggested they straighten the house. When I came home from work, I walked in to my empty house that smelled....clean!  It looked clean.  Jo had scrubbed the kitchen floor, cleaned off counter tops that I hadn't seen for over a week, washed the dishes, folded clothes, cleaned the living room, and vacuumed the carpet.
I found this in the middle of the kitchen table.
And that's not all!  He had a 1/2 gallon of chocolate milk for me in the fridge!  And it's not even my birthday!
Talk about going the extra mile! Thanks, Jordan.

One more!  Our monitor gave up the ghost yesterday.  I mentioned it to my friend, Karen (Kazzy's Ponderings).  She said that she had one at her house that was not being used.  I picked it up on the way home from work.  I realized I didn't have the right cord so I called Karen.  She not only found the cord but actually delivered it to my house and helped me install it! 
 Another extra miler!  Thanks, Karen!

I am truly blessed!
Today is a great day!!!

You are SO blessed! I don't think there's anything that touches a mom's heart more, than when their children "go the extra mile". Clean house, sweet note, flowers, chocolate milk. WOW!!

Sounds like your week ended on a happy note!!

You are an amazing mom and an amazing person and what a JOY it is to know you!!

Here's to another HAPPY week!!

Did you check the expiration date on the chocolate milk? Any recent dumpster diving? JoJo's a good man..and I'm sure Jacob helped out too. You deserve it!!
