The Simple Things

1. The look of pride and joy and satisfaction on Grady Lee's face when he finally finished his AWANA Sparks book. This was a big accomplishment for him and one that I never pushed. I wanted him to work at his own pace and with his own motivation and practice. He is one happy kid and I am one proud mom!

2. A pantry and fridge that are full of food. Seriously, how many times do I hum and haw about what I'm going to make for dinner, without even stopping to think about 90 percent of the world that doesn't have an option for dinner?

3. Date Night - actually, the anticipation of it! Grady has been gone all week and I'm looking forward to a nice dinner out (along with friends!) tomorrow evening.

What about you - what Simple Things did you enjoy this week?


  1. listening to my kids belly laugh, enjoying my boy's excitement over their new prayer journals, sweet time in prayer with a dear friend, a long phone call with a friend from far away, anticipating a fun date night with my own husband.... the list goes one, I am so blessed!

  2. Helping out in my kids' classrooms at school, having the sliding door open this afternoon & hearing the kids play noises fluttering in (so far, no screaming, yeah!), and this moment right now...Friday afternoon, the weekend has begun, 5 kids are happily playing & I have 5 minutes to sit & read blogs!
    Enjoy your date night!!
