Girls Write Out
Wednesday, November 07, 2007

Some things are big, some things are small,
but all these things that make me smile.

A baby’s belly-laugh
A pair of jeans that make you feel skinny
The first warm, sunny spring day
A long, hot bubble bath
Lipstick in the perfect shade
Great friends
An unexpected hug from your child
A twenty-dollar bill in last year’s coat pocket
A phone call from an old friend
A sincere compliment on a rotten day
A beautiful sunset
Free internet while you’re traveling
The first crisp day of autumn
A morning to sleep in
A great babysitter
Sliding under your covers after a long, tiring day
The first day of school
A pen that writes great
A novel you can’t put down
A fire crackling in the fireplace
The smell of pine trees
A photo that makes you look photogenic
Unexpected acts of kindness
A good hair day
The smell of fresh-cut flowers
A shoulder to lean on
The first coffee of the morning

What’s priceless to you?

A kiss
The sky
The season premiere of my favorite show
A roller coaster ride
Completely losing myself in the music of a Sunday morning service, falling into the groove and improvising a beautiful new song in praise to God.

C and I just went to see Di at the hospital. Let's just say she has plenty to blog about now.

Great "priceless" things everyone!

Mercy when I deserve punishment.

The unconditional love of my kids, no matter how much I mess up.

The love of a good man (isn't that a country song?), my DH!

A good cup of coffee.

Candles that make your house smell tasty, and have no calories.

When you finish a book and go "ahhh", because it was that satisfying.



And finally, chocolate.

All the things I'm grateful for revolve around my surgery. AMEN to Diann's comment about drugs after surgery. The morphine I got in the recovery room was great and they kept me medicated enough I actually didn't have too much discomfort.
Hospitals making good blog topics.
Coming home and getting into your own bed.
Being able to sit in a chair after 10 months with minimal sciatic pain.
No more eating standing up.
Being able to sleep through the night.
Knowing I'll be able to fly again.
Having the support of family and friends.
A wonderful mother who doesn't mind tying shoes because I still can't bend over that far.
A very enthusiastic physical therapist.
A laptop computer to help keep me entertained.
I could go on but the most important, God's grace in answering my prayers for healing of my back. After almost three years I'm finally getting there. :)

I agree with the baby's belly laugh. That's the sweetest sound on earth.

My other one is finding that $20 in the washing machine! :o) That's how I got my boys both learning to do laundry. What you find in the washer is yours! :o)
