Things I love…

I’ve recently been thinking on all the wonderful things in the world and my life.  I just want to say that I love…

  • chubby baby fingers and wrists.
  • tulip and daffodil blossoms after a LONG winter.
  • summer nights…it is wonderful to go out in the dark, warm air.  I love taking a huge breath and smelling the air and looking up at the stars.
  • books!  I’m a self-proclaimed book addict.  I have to set the timer throughout the day so I can actually get things done at home OTHER than reading!  I love losing myself in a great book.
  • those first few moments after collapsing into my bed to go to sleep and realizing how comfortable I am. 
  • stepping on the scale and seeing a lower number than the day before.
  • watching little Russell do his eye dancing.  You should really see it.  It’s hilarious!
  • finding a new issue of Taste of Home in the mailbox.
  • watching a really good “girl” movie, even though I have to watch them alone! 🙂
  • seeing little Russell and Trey give each other a genuine, unprompted hug.
  • college football!!!
  • new shoes.
  • spring days when you can spend the entire day outside and be neither cold nor hot.
  • hearing Trey talk.  I love his pronunciations and how he says all his words.
  • the Narnia soundtrack.
  • fireflies.
  • the fact that Russell knows me better than anyone else on the planet, including that I am a pretty boring person, average looking, and full of many, many faults, yet he loves me anyway and shows me every day.

 And so many more things than these!

    I’m so glad that you’re so happy. You forgot the part where you put up with all of Russell’s quirks, too!!! I can’t wait to see you “Ohio Leggs” again. Alora can’t wait to meet you. Love you.

    Mom and I must have done a pretty good job with you!! You are so humble, yet so talented and beautiful. I am so proud of myself!! What a great writer you are and you are doing such a great job with your boys. And, just for the record, Russell is no fool, you know. Give him some credit for knowing a good thing when he found you. Love, Dad
