Before we head out for the afternoon, I pull my little moleskine notebook out of my purse and transfer the joy list. Gifts are meant for sharing...
Making his first ever game shot. Arms immediately thrown in the air. Sweet satisfaction.
The sun's bright white rays streaming through dark clouds.
Peter's wonder at it all.
Finding sticks in my purse. And moss covered tree bark.
A stand up and cheer family movie night. Secretariat on DVD.
Mushrooms on my section of the pizza.
Out for sushi with my love.
Under eye concealer.
Her gratitude journal. (Hannah adds five to her own list each night before bed.)
Crocuses. Signs of life returning to the landscape.
Climbing the stairs ready to fold then finding the laundry folded and put away. When this happens it always makes the list. : )
Math lessons that involve chocolate chips. (The book suggested dried beans as counters but what fun is that?)
Their love to look at their baby albums. (Hannah and Will that is... poor Peter's is still not finished!)
Feet meeting in the middle of the couch. Sunday reading with Hannah.
The sovereignty of God.
Resting in that.
