The Simple Things

1. The healthy arrival of Journey Kay, a darling little girl welcomed into my cousin's family. (And, in less than two months they pack up and return to Africa!) Also, the wonderful news of a healthy nephew for my bro and sis-in-law, who is set to arrive sometime in mid June. Thank you Jesus for these precious lives joining our family, and prayerfully, someday Your family.

2. Not too dissimilar from everyone else in America, I loved the Springlike weather this week! Windows and doors open. Trees budding. Picnic lunches. Short sleeves. Bright sun. [Insert happy sigh.]

3. A quiet, but productive week. The boys were wonderfully obedient and made progress each day in terms of schoolwork. Grady was in LA for a few days and our home stayed, ahem, calm even while he was away. Everyone in our home, for now, is healthy, despite a horrible stomach bug that is circulating.

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


  1. watching my son run dressed as "superman" - raincoat, rainboots and his blanket from when he was born tied around his neck.

  2. This weather is AWESOME!!! We too enjoyed lots of outside time!!! Glad you all had a healthy week. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. The first thing that comes to mind is my wonderful husband doing laundry and dishes last night because I was so tired (and coming down with a cold). I was able to go to sleep at (shh!) 7:30 pm!

    So glad for what sounds like a wonderful week all around for you!
