I AM THANKFUL

February 15, 2010

23. Samantha Brown travel shows – think I could have my own…

24. Receiving flowers 2 days BEFORE Valentine’s so I can enjoy & smell all weekend long

25. Writing a love letter to my man…and remembering why he amazes me

26. Speaking to moms & daughters – watching as the moms tear up – realizing that every mother has a special dream for her daughter – knowing I will soon have dreams of my own for Selah

27. Drinking coffee in my Anthropologie mugs…just makes me happy

28. Writing Thank You notes – realizing that I am loved

29. My niece Madi’s hugs

30. The way Madi immediately says “Josh” when she sees me – she just knows we go together…

31. Feeling God’s love in a tangible way

32. Seeing people give of their time to build dreams

33. Finishing a good book

34. Hearing amazing background stories of Olympians – inspirational

35. Life forever changing with just one glimpse at that face


36. 4am feedings when we talk about the things she will do

37. Watching her search for fingers to suck

38. A labor that was perfect for me – even when the epidural didn’t fully numb the pain

39. Tiny clothes that are too big

40. Hearing my dad say, “It’s amazing how quickly you can fall in love with someone so small.”


41. Having him stay home to hold her…to comfort me…to simply be

42. Tears of joy

43. Learning to embrace the silence…a slower rhythm of life


holy experience
