My mommy is wonderful!

So i was all ready to write about how I seem to have the energy sucked out of me today ...maybe from lack of sleep, maybe from DST, maybe from the extra duties at work, maybe from just being a plain old lazy ass...and then my cute little mother appears, knocking on the desk next to mine in my office. what a nice little surprise! and she comes bearing gifts...i lurve gifts! It's a teeny book about how God thinks I'm WONDERFUL by Max Lucado (because I am, ya know :P) that I think everyone should read. Even if you aren't a religious person or faithful in any way, you could get something out of it by just replacing the "G" word with "someone" or "higher power", "mother nature", "my mom", whatever ya fancy. The key thing is to stop and appreciate that you MEAN SOMETHING - you MATTER - YOU ROCK :P We get so caught up in numbers and inches and goals and we forget about the little things and then a little book appears in front of you that hammers home the most simplistic things (and it doesn't have to be Oprah endorsed -WOOOHAH!). So even if you don't want to go out and buy it, go to Hallmark and act like it's a library. It takes all of 5 minutes to read and it warms your heart. Then, maybe you'll buy it and send to someone you love like my mommy did :) Because she rocks!
