Happy LOVE Day!

On Thursdays, I usually give you a list of the things I am thankful for, but since today is Valentine's Day, I am going to change things a little. Today's list is of things I love. Some are trivial, others are deep, but they all are true.

1. diet coke with Sonic ice- crunch, crunch
2. watching Lost and the week long discussion that follows as me and my friends try to figure out what in the world is going to happen next.
3. long walks with Abby (Crazy Puppy) and her nap after we get home
4. no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies, especially if they are made by my mom and I can eat them while teasing my brother on the phone that he doesn't have any (usually it is him teasing me because he lives 10 minutes from my parents and I live 2 1/2 hours away)
5. worship music at church- some weeks it moves me to tears and other weeks it make me want to dance in the aisles
6. Jonathon- how he loves to give hugs, how if he wasn't so big he would curl up in my lap, how he is concerned about others, how he asked his dad if he needed to help "talk" to the boys who are going to date his sisters, how he is just who God made him to be.
7. Grace- how she KNOWS how she wants her hair, how she loves her daddy, how she likes to be with her friends, how she just wants spend time together, how she wants to be like mom.
8. Ella- how she is just so cute, how she has to have things HER way, how she negotiates nap time (I will just rest on the couch), how she runs to the door when daddy comes home, how she gets excited over the little things(stickers, talking to a friend on the phone or seeing her picture on the digital camera), how I could just eat her up!
9. Les- how he smells, how safe I feel in his arms, how he makes me laugh, when I hear the door and know he is home, when I see him playing with our kids, how he has let God turn him into the man he is today.
10. Jesus, my Lord and Savior- how He died for me and saved me and how He loves me eventhough I mess up every day.

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope it is full of love!
