The simple things

As I was going about my day today, I was feeling a little frustrated and negative. Instead of letting it get to me I decided to count my blessing instead. I started thinking about all the good things in life and the simple things that just make me smile :) Here are some of the things that I love!
  • I love a nice clean house, when you just get done cleaning and you can sit back and admire a job well done.
  • I love taking long, hot showers. At the end of a stressful day, or just to warm up on a cold winter day.
  • I love holding hands with Jared.
  • I love listening to Morgan sing.
  • I love it when David cuddles with me.
  • I love the smell of roses.
  • I love to laugh.
  • I love homemade cookies, but hate that I can't stop after just one, or two.
  • I love to find good deals. Its my favorite when you go to pay for something and its cheaper than you thought it was going to be.
  • I love running. I love the way I feel after a nice long run.
  • I love it when my kids play together without fighting and crying.
  • I love soaking in the sun
  • I love dancing. When Jared and I dance in the kitchen even though we don't have any music.
  • I love the sound of water, or the smell of paper hot off the press.
  • I love curling up and spending hours lost in a good book.
  • I love thunder storms. Sitting out on the porch watching a thunder/lightening storm and smelling the rain.
  • I love being organized. I hate clutter, and things laying around. I love it when everything has a place, and is in its place, all neat and tidy!
  • I love sleeping in. There's nothing like waking up in the morning and looking at the clock to find that its 9:00. Its a great way to start every morning.

These are just a few of the many things that I love. What are some of the things you love?

I love it when something breaks and Lee fixes it because he is so smart and can do anything. Like tonight when the washer broke and he fixed it withing a couple of hours. Men are worth hanging onto. I've kept this one for 33 years... and counting...

I love hanging out with friends.
I love heart to heart talks with tears and hard belly laughs. I love watching my kids accomplishments. I love people. I love watching movies with my husband while snuggling in bed. I love icecream. I love sitting on the beach just staring at the ocean. I love my family.

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
