Day 57: Siblings

Those of you who know me know that I am horrible at making phone calls. Basically, I don't do it. This includes phone calls for setting up appointments (I have at least 3 of these I need to make right now), paying bills, returning phone calls, calling friends and family, etc. Basically, any type of phone call. I just don't do it.

And I frequently don't pick up when my phone is the one ringing. I can't really tell you why. I just don't like being on the phone much.

But tonight I was feeling a little out of sorts and really wishing I could call my mom. Unfortunately, that isn't possible right now as she is out of the country. So, I busied myself with making dinner and tried to ignore the feelings.

Then my cell phone rang and I actually went to answer it. Sweet P beat me to it and had a nice long chat with my little sister. Then Little M wanted a turn and while he was chatting away, my home phone rang. So, I answered that one and it was my big brother. Long story short, he conferenced my little sister in and we had a nice chat between the three of us.

My family and I are all quite spread out across the world, so any time we can get together I love it. And tonight, it was sort of like I got to hang out with the two of them. And it was that much better because I really needed my family tonight. So, thank you to both of you for thinking of me and doing what I'm so lousy at. And thank you for providing me with an excellent Joyful Moment talking and laughing with you. I love you both!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments from feeling loved by those you love!

It made Ry's day too. My joyful moment was that I actually sucessfully adapted a horrible dress pattern into a rather nice Easter Dress for Kylie

That was my joyful moment too! And today it was... you'll never guess... my visiting teachers offered to throw me a baby shower before I move! :)

I find gret joy in reading this. I'm so grateful for my kids!

My joy came from being to take a shower at a friend of Belky's since there was no running water at her home.
