Today is my birthday, and I feel like writing down some things I love - in no particular order:

- Rain, hot chocolate and a good book
- Delicate, little flowers
- My children's laughs
- Listening to my husband explain concepts or stories in the Bible
- The smell of rice cooking
- Family adventures exploring nature or new cities
- Chocolate mint bars
- Seeing my baby wake up with a milk moustache after nursing in the night
- Wearing flip-flops
- Going to church
- Chuckling with my husband over our son's crazy antics

- Sunshine
- Line-drying clothes
- Newsy letters from friends
- Fresh bread from my oven
- Nap time
- Hearing my husband coming in the door from work
- Recognizing a change that God has worked in my heart
- Organization, lists and schedules
- Black beans and rice
- Watching children grasp a new concept

The list could go on and on and on...

God has given me so much in life to just enjoy and I enjoy life much more when I keep my eyes open to all I have to be thankful for.
