Friends announcing engagements, pregnancies, hunting for houses, and moving into houses
A husband who makes you laugh
Kid birthday parties making rolling robots
Finding new roses hidden in your backyard
Getting through day 24 of Shred with energy left over at the end
Learning about yourself through the comments of others
Daddies who paint their little girl's fingernails
Sending your mom a homemade birthday card
Thinking of the smile she will get from the sweet sentiment
Taking walks with friends
Spotting the season's first bougainvillea flower
Having lunch with your aunt who you haven't seen in over 4 years
Leftover Easter candy
Lunch dates with your husband
Figuring out that true joy comes from Him, not circumstance. And feeling that joy from within.
Kids asking to go to bed 2 hours early because they are excited about their field trip in the morning
Listening to your husband wake himself up from his own snoring
Putting special notes in kid lunches
"Birds love cheez-its, Mama!" 40 times in 1 afternoon
Looking forward to a week vacation. With a stack of fresh books to read.
Soft, pink, little girl blankets
Checking on your son past his bedtime, only to find him sneaking a read of his Bible.
The compassion that fills the room of AA meetings
Neighborhood kids riding bikes together
Headbands and tights
Friends taking birthday cakes and crying during their speech
Putting the flannel sheets back in the hall closet
Hearing your dad say he is proud of the woman you have become
The weekend...is it here yet?
