10 Things I Love

Karen from Over the Back Yard Fence challenged us to make a list of 10 Things I Love. I told her that the first thing on my list would be HER LIST! It's exactly the list I would write. Except for the one about her milk bottles being delivered. I had no idea milk could still be delivered in bottles - I thought it was at the store in plastic jugs these days!

So even though Karen used all the good ideas :-) I am going to make a list of 10 things that I love. And of course I love my husband and family more than anything. These are besides the obvious!

1. Watching the little Goldfinch's come to eat at the feeder I have by my patio.

2. Walking into my 17 year old daughter's room and over-hearing her pray on the phone with her friend.

3. My 2 cups of coffee I drink every morning on my patio. Every morning.

4. Getting a package of new books in the mail.

5. Freshly washed sheets.

6. How when I sit down, my little dog Josey, comes and waits for me to pick her up.

7. Listening to the children leave the sanctuary for Children's Church.

8. Growing berries in my back yard.

9. Quilts

10. When someone asks me, "Are you losing weight?"

Okay, so what 10 things do you love?

Aww, you're sweet! and thanks for the link:) Your #2 is so awesome. You should feel so good about that. And coffee on the patio -- oh, yeah, every morning -- me too!

Coffee/tea being a drink you can get anywhere you may go in the world. I think I would die if some disease killed all the coffee plants

Robin, I loved - truly - reading your 10. A gift just to read through them. You and I sound like kindred spirits, separated by miles. Hugs to you, Bev

"Walking into my 17 year old daughter's room and over-hearing her pray on the phone with her friend."

This is such a wonderful thing. I took this so for granted with my oldest two daughters. Now I am walking a different road with my youngest. I am thankful just to hear her tell me that she loves me.

Count your blessings and tell your daughter how amazing she is and how proud you are of her.

You are blessed!

Your list, although not exactly a list I would have compiled put another smile on my face :).

I loved your #2, I related to your #3, and your #4? I "accidentally" bought 19 books during John Piper's $5 sale...19! Talk about excessive, but $5 for hardback??? Couldn't resist. Many of them will end up becoming gifts, anyway...

#10 has got to feel as good as eating a pounder of M&Ms...no, better!
