Thanks So Much!

Oh what a treat! I've been blessed with this kind award by Cindy at Consider It All Joy. What a delight. I think the rules are to list ten things that make me happy ~ unless I'm mixing this up with another award and if that's the case, please forgive me. I am becoming more blond each month....

Here we go with my list of happy things:

  • Picking up the phone to hear JJ or Honey say, "Hi"
  • Seeing Max run into our arms, or climb on our heads or attack our bouncy limbs under the cozy blanket just to play
  • Hearing the organ lift the hymn with a key change and realizing all the stops are open on Sunday morning
  • Receiving e-mail or a note on facebook from a dear friend or a brand new friend
  • Really, really crisp onion rings that make your mouth water
  • Barbecue aromas
  • Seeing DJ walk in the door with his fabulous smile every single time
  • Every phone call with my laughter-support group (you know who you are)
  • Sunshine
  • Knowing, absolutely, completely ~ that I am forgiven and going to Heaven

So there it is! I'd like to pass this on to:

Amy at Life and Times

Christelle at Beloved Mama

and you. If you're a faithful reader of Grace Today...Please join the fun. Happy things bless each one of us. And it is time to say "Thanks."

Lots of love ~

Hi...first time to your blog...love Sara Groves! I also like the little picture of the tea time tag you have posted! I need that on my site. I've only been blogging for 2 weeks, so I don't know how to do that yet!

Sunshine would make my top 10 too and I live in very cloudy Michigan.
So I painted my kitchen a nice sunny yellow color. : )

Oh! You are too much! ;)

I think I'm going to start posting these on my blog!

P.S. This morning's temperature (here in SW Virginia) was 15 degrees! Yes, 15. Wouldn't you love to live here? ;o)

Bless you my friend,

Let me tell you what I love...

1. the smell of fresh laundry when I'm out on my morning runs

2. nights with nothing on the calendar.

3. snuggling under grandma's quilt.

4. breaking open a new Beth Moore Bible study.

5. 9:00 PM...with 4 kids, no need to wonder about this one.

6. when people tell me they have remembered me in prayer, and I know they mean it.

7. harry and david's dark mint truffles.

8. unexpected laughter.

9. tuesdays with the ancients at lunch and my bible study gals at night.

10. a brand new Chris Tomlin CD.

How are you, friend? I'm on facebook too. Look me up. I need some friends! (elaine olsen)

peace to you in Sunny this day~elaine
