Things I love




My friend, Allyson sent me this, the rules are to list 5 things you love, link back to me and pass along to 5 friends.




I LOVE:




1. My family... my husband, my children, my parents and sisters, my in-laws, my neices and nephews - and I am so thankful that we are all a close family and get along so great!




2. To excercise - especially when I can do it when it's not taking me away from my family - I love to get up before everyone else and go for a quiet, dark run outside with my dog, Daisy (though lately at least one child has been waking up at 4:30 am - the time I usually try to go, so it hasn't been happening)




3. To eat.... especially this time of year, turkey and dressing and desserts galore!!!!!




4. My house decorated for Christmas and a cozy fire and all the ones I love close to me!




5. To sit back and watch my children play with each other and friends - to see sheer joy in their faces as they do what God intended for them to do at this young, tender age - laugh and have fun!


6. (because I can't stop there) Jesus - plain and simple, I love Jesus!






5 friends whose blogs I love:






2. Abby


3. Andi






6. (because I still can't stop) Tara and Lindsey and Leigh -- there are so many more I would love to add, but for time's sake, I will stop there!

Yes SISTER, I did read "The Stickler's Blog". I'm guessing I'm the SISTER you are referring to on there. I would love to take your children away from you for a couple of days, but if you wanted them to all come back and in one piece, I would be weary of trusting me with all of them. One at a time, maybe. :)

You know I love them & will help as much as I can whenever you need me to! I love you!

I was so excited to get your comment! LL-one of my twins came to know Jesus when she was in 4 year old pre-school- There was no doubt in my mind about it! We did wait to baptize until this year- i'm not really sure why. I have loved looking at your blog! It is wonderful!!! It will take me a while, but I want to read every post! Talk to you soon-

Love your favorites! I can relate to all of them! I love an early morning run. There is no better time to bask in God's glory than when the sun is just starting to light up His creation.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
