Not sure how many have read the book the Five Love Languages, but one thing they talk about is filling others love bucket. I often think about how well I do this for Blake and the kids...as well as others in my life.
This past Wednesday my parents drove from Oklahoma to see us. They asked us months ago to arrange for a sitter to watch the kids so that we could have dinner together. I can't tell you how much fun it was to hang out with the two of them. We were at dinner for over 2 hours just sitting outside in the beautiful spring weather eating drinking and catching up. Man, I can't wait live next to these two!
Then Thursday morning they got up at 5 to get Dunkin Donuts for the kids and be at their bedside BEFORE they woke up!! Thursday was Owen's Gotcha Day and donuts is our tradition! To say they were all on cloud 9 would be an understatement. It took quite sometime for them to stop screaming.
We have just hung out and played and eaten yummy food and enjoyed being together. Today we brought them to Stone Mountain Park and hiked and at putt putt and ride the train. It's been an incredible dose of love for my bucket.
Gosh. I pray I can make my kids feel loved the way I feel it from my parents. And I hope my parents feel as loved as I do. Enjoy the pics...oh, and as an update to the last post, the girls and I baked some goodies for the receptionists at the doctors office and wrote out the same note for them. They loved the surprise and I hope they understood my heart in the note.
