100 Joys - December 2011

I looked back tonight at the 100 Joys I participated in last December via Sarah Markley. In reading through them I remembered how fun it was to write those joys. And what a great way it was to remember the wonderful details of an otherwise busy and stressful time of year! And since this entire year has been somewhat difficult, I could stand to focus on some joy. So without wasting another day, here's the first of 100 Joys, December 2011.

1 - My man helped me fold about four loads of laundry today. {And since I hate doing laundry, that was a huge joy!}

2 - Spontaneous dinner with a good friend, her mom and kids.

3 - The family attended my 6th grader's Christmas choir concert. They sang Infant Holy and I Saw Three Ships. They did an outstanding job on both songs! In addition, we heard the 7th and 8th grade choirs {also fabulous} and the high school Madrigal singers...wow! I think what amazed me the most was hearing the Gospel shared through Christmas songs in a public school setting. Joy!

4 - I spent an hour talking with my counselor. She always makes a point to incorporate God's grace into our conversations. In learning so much about grace this year, I'm still amazed at how much more there is to learn and experience.

5 - Running barefoot in my pjs in the rain to the bus to give my daughter her water bottle that she dropped. If that doesn't make me {and you} smile, I don't know what will!

  1. great job of noticing life around you...and so wonderful that your counselor is a believer that makes all the difference in the process.
