Patience and Orchids

I got home last night from a weekend at my parents’ house for mother’s day to find:
– lawn mowed
– weeds whacked
– carpets vacuumed
– dishes done
– house clean
– a picnic in the back yard
– a beautiful orchid plant

Seriously? Best surprise ever! Particularly because we’ve had a rough month or two with B’s studying for the CFA. He’s been stressed, I’ve been snappy… we’re both counting the days until the test. (26, if you’re wondering).

All just another reason I need to remind myself to have patience with him when he gets in his manic-study-nothing-else-exists-modes. Because in his natural state he is very thoughtful and sweet, and he won’t be studying forever.
