My sister-in-laws Michal and Starr made Joy Lists. These are lists of things that bring joy to their lives.
Michal's list was all about Cornerstone and everything she loved about going there and Starr's was a list about things in everyday life.
I thought it sounded like such a great idea that I wanted to make my own joy list. So often we take for granted the little things in life.
What brings joy to your life?
Here is my list. It is not in any order as I am just going to type what I think of while I am watching cooking shows.
*My kitchen aid mixer
*Anything pink and green - I'm serious, I like anything that is any shade of pink and green. My girls' life colors are pink and green. When I plan a party for them it is pink and green, when I want to buy matching outfits I try to find pink and green. I regret not doing my wedding in pink and green.
*Staying home with my girls
*My job working with migrant students - these are some really special and neat kids. Take a moment and think about what their parents are giving up to give their children a better life.
*The combination of polka dots, stripes, and cute flowers.
*My sisters - I'd put a link to them, but they decided to quit their blogs
*My mom and dad
*My wonderful husband
*Chocolate chips - I pretty much like them in anything: plain, yogurt, cereal, mandarin oranges, cookies, muffins
*Things that begin with C: cookies, cake, candy, carbs, chocolate, you get the picture
*Watching my babies sleep
*A clean house
*I"m sure finishing a home project would be a joy in my life, but I've never experienced that since I can't think of a project that I have ever finished.
*Good hair days (stolen from Starr). I haven't been seeing too many of them lately though. Thanks a lot humidity.
*Making cakes for Annabelle and Ariel's birthday.
*Ice cream - I like it all
*Pineapple and ham pizza
*My front loading washer and dryer
*The fact that I have never had a cavity - I"m pretty sure you don't want to be around me when if I do get one someday. I get a little teary eyed when they poke longer than I think they should be poking.
*Our toaster/convection oven - You need to get one!
*Bare Minerals make up - You need to try it!
*When my phone rings (and I can find it)
*Freckles - Ariel is starting to get some! Annabelle doesn't really like "thimples" though. I think she wanted to call them pimples, but knew that wasn't quite right.
*My steam mop
*The Monster Steamer
*Taste of Home Magazine
*Getting an actual letter in the mail
*Finding jeans that fit
*My whaki pants (gone, but not forgotten)
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
*Mint anything - hot chocolate, brownies, candy
Well that's all I am going to write for now. Maybe another time I will do another addition of my Joy List.
