1. Two days of rain. I can't remember the last time it rained and the two days of cozy-stay-inside-and-enjoy-coffee-while-getting-things-done were much needed.
2. Friends with powerful examples of faith. I read blog posts and emails from friends this week who are living a minute-to-minute kind of faith. It does two things for me: one, it reminds me how lacking I am in my day-to-day faith; and two, it motivates me to pursue Jesus with more intention so that I am not found wanting when the difficult times come.
3. Healthy family! No mass quantities of tissues this week. No mixing acetaminophen into yogurt or applesauce. No middle-of-the-night wake-ups. No backing out of pre-planned activities because someone wasn't feeling well.
What about you - what Simple Things did you appreciate this week?
