Last week’s post on my favorite things left me with a foul taste in my mouth. It is fun to have those little things in your life that you just love, but they don’t compare to what really matters right?
I love God. He has blessed me over and over and over again. I have seen His work in my life and in the lives of countless people who I am close to. I never cease to be amazed at His goodness.
My husband. Without him who knows where I would be. Andrew has taught me so much about life and love and all the good and bad inbetween. I love you baby! He also gave me two beautiful children (with one on the way) who are my joy.
My kids. While I was pregnant with Axel we thought we were going to lose him. Countless hours of prayer and tears and here he is! Sweet and handsome. I had troubles during my pregnancy with Miracle as well and when she was born she stopped breathing. She earned her name that is for sure! It is a little humbling when you receive a bill for “newborn resuscitation.”
My family in general. I won’t start naming names but you know who you are 🙂 I have been so blessed with a gigantic family all whom are extremely loving and caring. I even married into an amazing family!
Then there are the little things that I love:
- Tea and coffee with my hubby in the mornings
- The view off my deck at night. (we live in Maplewood and can see all the way to Inver Grove Heights on a clear night). So very thankful for our new house!
- My daycare babies. Yes, I love them.
- Eating ice cream with my kids. Axel loves all the toppings and making it just how he likes it. Miracle is just addicted.
I could go on and on. I really am so blessed in so many ways! Praise the Lord.
