*My sweet Lord Jesus, without whom I cannot even draw breath.
*Having four children and one husband pile onto the bed to "wake me up," even though I'd already been awake and smelling pancakes...and wishing me a Happy Mother's Day!
*Being crowned with a dandelion crown as "Queen of the Z Family."
*Arriving at Mass yesterday and hearing a wind ensemble...oboe, flute, bassoon, a few strings, perhaps a clarinet--or maybe it was an English horn? What a treat for Pentecost!
*Warm enough weather that it's warmer outside the house than in.
*Curling up on my lovely swing for a snooze in the sunshine. I may not be a cat, but I can nap just as well as one, for Pete's sake.
*Realizing yesterday that at ten weeks, I am closer to seeing this baby...one quarter of the way done...25%.
*Slipping into the cold side of the bed, and inching my way closer to my Darling's toasty warm side.
*Going to the library and finding really old Thomas videos that my little Monkey hasn't seen yet.
*Finding fresh strawberries on sale at the grocery store.
*Anticipating making Mexican Chicken Soup, as seen on Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa...mmmmmmmmmmmmm.........
*Knowing that all of these treasures don't even compare even a smidge to what's in store in heaven..................
