It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. And today’s post hits close to home.
Many of you personally know my family…my daughter Tara, dog Shadow, and husband Joel. Well, the ones closest to you often see the best and worst of us.
Recently I signed up to be Yucca Valley High School Music Booster President. If you’ve known me for a while this is no surprise. I often take on challenges that seem insurmountable until they are done. And as always, Joel is supportive of all my crazy adventures even if they add a bit of stress.
But this time he seemed to step up a bit more. I came home to a clean house and questions on how to make dinner yesterday. Not what was for dinner but how to make it. His actions spoke louder than all the words in the dictionary.
So I would encourage you to be that person for who you live with or see often. Don’t let them always see you at your worst. Show them that you are there to be supportive as well as to help where you can.
With inky fingers,
P.S. And if anyone sees Joel today don’t forget to wish him a happy birthday!
