My wife and I signed the papers to create a living trust of our assets.
Now we do not have to worry about what will happen if we die. Our son will inherit our assets without having to go through probate. This is a great relief.

Our school trip visited a McDonalds for breakfast after an overnight bus trip and the manager came out at the end and thank us for coming in. She also sought feedback as to how everything went.
I was surprised and felt a lightening of spirit. Their gratefulness was unexpectedness and made me smile.

Thankful for the rainy, chilly weather and the beautiful fall colors.
Makes me appreciate sunny warm days even more. Also reminds me the weather here is much more mild than where I used to live.

A bus pulled up to a stop. I was across the street waiting for the light to change. I waved to the driver. The bus could have legally gone through the intersection but the driver waited. When the light changed I scurried across the street and boarded the bus. We waited for the light to change and proceeded legally.
I did not have to wait for the next bus. I did not have to walk home. I got home quickly. I thanked the driver a couple of times and thanked the driver when I left the bus.

I was riding my bike today and passed over the highway and saw a graffiti flower painted on the side of the overpass so I went to go take a photo. There was a homeless man standing nearby and I started talking to him...apparently he had done the flower to cover up some more vile graffiti and got a ticket for it. He told me that the judge told him he needed permission to draw on city property but he said he was going to finish it anyway. I don't know if his story was true, but I appreciated his story and the animation with which he shared it. I also am grateful for the chance to connect with this man and share in the common bond of our humanity.
I got to see that the human spirit endures even in hardship.

She told me that I am a great student and will always try my best even if I may not receive the grade that I believe I deserve
This action helped me recognize that I need to be more compassionate toward myself because I will push myself too far beyond what is expected of me, and it is detrimental to my levels of happiness

My daughters, woke up this morning without my having to wake them up. They had already pulled out their clothes the night before and went to bed on time. Upon waking up, they told me that they were proud of me and that they know I've been working hard for them.
This made me reflect and appreciate what steps I take to ensure that my daughters are to grow up to be a "stand up" pair. It brightened my rather hard to wake up morning.

This morning I got to look at my sleeping son who had fallen back asleep next to the heating vent. I got to smooch his sweet little face before leaving and watch his eyes flutter open. "Have a good day, momma."
I felt love and loved.
