One of our assignments in this #BraveBlogging course is to write a list of things we love. Everyone loves lists, she says. So here goes mine. Of course I love the obvious things in life - my husband, my boys, my family, my friends. That goes without saying (even if I am often guilty of not saying it enough). Here are a few other things, in no particular order:
The very FIRST sip of coffee in the morning. Somehow it tastes different than all the rest.
The sounds the boys make when they chew and suck their thumbs
Laughing at #damnyouautocorrect texts (laughing in general is good, but these get guaranteed belly laughs with accompanying howls and tears)
Writing when inspiration strikes and my hands can’t keep up with my mind
Dutch Mints, lime PixiStix and Red Hots (the dye, oh the dye)
Sitting by the first fire of the fall
Brand new pilot V balls
Conversations that ‘click’ and make me want to do something inspiring
My dad’s music collection
Waking up to find a beautiful sunrise over the lake
Beautiful cookbooks and kitchen gadgets
Breakfast on my back porch in the sun
The unbridled sweetness my son can barely contain when he’s happy: “Hey mama guess what? I love you SO much I am going to make you a valentine for your birfday and put a heart in it. You’re the best mom EVER.” (Silas, age 4)
Lilacs and peonies (for my mother, of course)
What's on your list?
