Thanking God on Friday...It's the Little Things

friday favorite things | finding joy

Jamison's green nails in preparation for St. Patrick's Day.

Do you have friends in your life who are like "sisters from another mister."  I do, and two of them were on vacation at the same time.  They are both safe and sound at home now and I am grateful...I missed my girls.

A sweet & encouraging email from a dear friend at just the right time.

The way Rondell displayed the taco shells for dinner the other night...see why I promoted him to chef?

This conversation with Caleb:

Caleb:  Mommy, can I have a gralila (granola) bar?
Me:  After dinner Caleb.
Caleb:  But Mom, I'm hungry.
Me:  Then you should eat dinner.
Caleb:  But Mom, I'm hungry and if I don't have a gralila bar then my tummy will eat my bones!
Me:  {Laughter}

Watching Jamison rock it out during her chorus performance.
Jesus Calling hits the spot.
Seeing my husband in the middle of the day, just for a kiss.
Chocolate milk...I forgot how much I love it.
Texts from BSF friends to encourage each other to keep up on our daily lessons.
60 degree weather :)

What totally cute nails. Maybe I should get creative with our taco shells for taco night.
Loved Caleb's thought of eating bones.
We are also having great weather. We spent most of the weekend cleaning out flower beds.
