This week I have been extremely self centered... I got in a huge fight with my mom on Monday, fell down some stairs on Tuesday, had a terrible day at work on Wednesday and so by Thursday lets just say I wasn't thinking about anyone else but myself. When it was time for our Bible study at work I didn't even want to do it... The lesson was on how we need to reflect God's love to others (Philippians 1:27-2:4) ... darn and I was having so much fun with the pity party! I tried to think of something to do for someone and although the person I was fighting with at work or my mom probably would have been a better choice, I choose the Ross family. Trevor had surgery on Monday and at this point I hadn't even called to see how he was!! (She did keep us up to date with text messages). I asked my brother if he would mind making an extra batch of his enchiladas that night and he said no problem. On a related side note: My brother has also agreed to help Trevor out during the day while Michelle is working since Trevor can't lift more than 10 lbs for the next 3 weeks (try taking care of 3 kids under 2 and not lift anything!). I am so proud of him for agreeing to do that : )
So back to Thursday night- Kenny, the boys and I went to visit and bring dinner to the Ross family. Its funny how you do something (which I didn't even cook the food) to help someone else and it benefits you more (I think that is the point)?? I had fun talking with the Michelle and Trevor and seriously, how can you stay sad when you encounter their 3 beautiful, happy kids...
When we left Zack cried... Apparently it took them about 20 mins to get him calmed down after Candy/nanda (thats us) left! I am not saying I like the fact that he cried, but it sure is a self esteem booster!
