A few of my favorite things....

It's 5 minute Friday again. That time of the week where I just sit down and write for 5 minutes straight. No editing, no planning. Just writing.

This weeks topic: A few of my favorite things.


That first cup of coffee in the morning. Silky sweet creamer meets rich strong coffee....what a wonderful way to start the day.

Looking at my 3 boys and knowing that while it wasn't the way I would have planned it, God's plan was SO MUCH BETTER.

Laughing my head off with my husband. Takes me back to the beginning when I was head over heels in love with him and everything he did made me smile.

Time with girlfriends. They just get it like no one else. In an hours time you can discuss everything from grocery deals, to birth stories to your deepest darkest secret. It isn't uncommon for tears and laughter to occur in one sitting.

My baby's laugh. Especially when it is initiated because of something silly his bigger brothers are doing. Nothing tops that!

Random acts of kindness. Seeing someone else be nice for the sake of being nice, not expecting anything in return. Warms my heart.

God's word. The perfect life manual, God breathed, applicable yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Time's Up.
