My mom, who is normally rather amazing (check her out), reminded me of something this morning... On her weekly newsletter, she pointed out the need for self-appreciation - noticing the things that you do (because they need to be done), and then forget about.
Yesterday was a tough day for me. It was the first day back to school for the kids, and the youngers have pretty much forgotten they ever liked it in the first place. E cried all morning long. A joined in on the walk to school. By the time we got there, I was near tears too. (We couldn't get the car out of the driveway, due to the "snowboarding" of the previous day).
I know it was hard. But at the same time, it's important for the kids to get out of the house. (And lord knows, I need to have the time away from them). Even though it sucked, I did it. And today, they cried less (and I was able to drive), and I expect they'll be back in the swing of school by next week.
What have you done, that no one will thank you for, but ought to be recognized?
