DSAM17- Day 28

on October 28, 2017

Maggie is tired.  No, Maggie has not decided to begin self referencing in the third person… this is John.  I promised Maggie I would take tonight’s blog post because I had an inspirational moment this morning and because I think she could use a break if only for one evening. 

Maggie spent her morning today making everyone their own individual breakfasts. One girl wanted eggs, the other cereal, formula for one, and a smoothie for me. She did this all not because she had to, but out of the kindness of her heart.  That’s the moment that got me thinking…Here are some things that do not surprise me:

  1. That Maggie gives more time to others than she takes for herself.
  2. That she is a champion for all her children while never enabling them.  
  3. She has love for all people and an unselfishness that is borderline crazy.

I could go on and on, but I just felt that Maggie needed to be thanked for who she is and what she is about.  The world needs more people like you, honey. People willing to love fiercely and have “dangerous unselfishness.”  I am so glad to share this life with you and you inspire me to be better everyday.   Keep up the good work 🙂
