i cried it was so beautiful.
i also cried for about 15 other lovely reasons this weekend.

"my sister tells her husband how great he is at listening, getting things done promptly, making her happy, etc. and because she believes in him and positively encourages him—he feels the need to live up to that expectation and standard, and he really does." —young lady at church
this is brilliant people.
try it. serious. it works.
when i was little mom told me that i was the best, of all the children, at vacuuming. i had never noticed. but since she told me i was so good at it, i was eager to do it often and to really notice what a good job i did. forever more, i have loved vacuuming. pretty much this is trick psychology, but fortunately(/unfortunately?) it works!
sometimes i catch joshua telling me how much he loves something about me and i give him a sideways look… are you using reverse psych on me again?? either way, it entices me to really live up to that belief.
oh the pretty things a lil positivity can do!
happy sunday! i'm off to a pot luck & games with team awesome!
twice baked potatoes?! yes please!
