Love is in the Air

In case you haven't noticed, Valentine's Day is quickly approaching.

This weekend.

But I don't want to talk about mushy, romantic love.

I've been thinking about the blessings I have in my life
{besides the obvious - wonderful hubby and three beautiful kids :)}

I started to list in my head all the things about my life that I love right now and I thought I'd share them with you. Might have to turn this into a scrapbook page eventually....

1. I LOVE that I am able to stay home with my children instead of working outside the home.

2. I LOVE that my house backs up to an Amish farm and we get to enjoy their animals at the fence.

3. I LOVE that we have beautiful clear views of both the sunrise and sunset from the back of our house.

4. I LOVE that my boys have a sense of humor.

5. I LOVE that we live on a cul-de-sac and my kids can play in the street.

6. I LOVE writing articles for and putting together my MOPS newsletter.

7. I LOVE that other people love my newsletter ~ it makes me feel good.

8. I LOVE being able to be creative.

9. I LOVE the smell of a fresh box of crayons.

10. I LOVE that my husband polishes my shoes for me without me asking.

11. I LOVE spending time with our families.

12. I LOVE reading other people's blogs.

13. I LOVE finding the humor in my crazy everyday life.

14. I LOVE that Evan loves to draw.

15. I LOVE that Ryan loves school stuff.

16. I LOVE that Nathan loves reading books.

17. I LOVE how God uses verses that seem like they're speaking directly to me. 1 Peter 4:11 is a current favorite...

18. I LOVE how fresh flowers can brighten a room.

19. I LOVE having the windows open and getting fresh air in the house {like right now - in the middle of February!!}

20. I LOVE blogging and getting comments on my why don't you leave one? :)

I'd love to know what you LOVE about your life right now....what comes to mind? Leave me a comment :)
