Give back to those closest to you.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day we focus on giving back or paying it forward. I want to do a gentle reminder to love on those closest to us. Sometimes we look outward to help and come home to be grumbly, tired, and worn out. Every once in a while make sure you are appreciating those that are closest to you. Here’s my story for that.

Yesterday started out like any other day. I was a little hurried in what I was doing so I was being a bit short with those around me. I got done, packed, and ready with a couple minutes to spare. I apologized to hubby (Joel) for being short and wished I didn’t have a reason to apologize. Just another example of imperfection. I strive for better but sometimes things happen. I went through my day in the rain so I wasn’t myself. (I live in Southern California in the desert so rain is not part of every day life.)

When I get home he decides to cook dinner. We had tomato soup and grilled cheese which was a perfect warm ending to a long day. And the touch that made it just perfect…bacon roses. He had not forgotten Valentine’s Day. He had just made it his own.

I don’t say this for bragging rights, but instead it was a wake-up call for me. Be good to those you live with, love, and call your own.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
