Things that are making me happy today

This morning, while I was cooking breakfast, Jonathan asked Gabe and I to please not come into our room because he was "working on a surprise".  I was surprised indeed when he proudly led us into our room, where we saw this:

He had picked everything up, carefully made our bed (with all the decorative pillows!) and even lit the candle beside the bed.  At the end of the bed was a card, which said the following:
From Jonathan
to mom and dad.
I love you 5,000 tims more evry secent 
 That boy has a deep sweetness inside, and I am so blessed to be the recipient of his surprises!

And the second thing to make me smile?

Beautiful tulips that bloom in spite of the utter lack of care I have been devoting to my poor neglected garden. 
"Behold, I make all things new."  Revelation 21:5

Tell Jonathan I'm proud to be related to him. What a neat thing to do for his parents.

Your tulips look beautiful! Is that a mum beside them? I'm trying to figure out how to create an all-seasons garden of sorts. Last summer I had a newborn and the summer before we were just moving in, so I haven't really had a chance to create garden spaces here yet!

I used to do surprises like that for Mom :) Such a good way to help out :)
