What's Been Making Me Smile

  • The above picture and
  • Oreos and cream instant pudding and cheesecake
  • A successful PTA meeting at which I was able to meet the parents of most of my 3rd and 4th graders. We had some important conversations about their kids' progress in school and with learning English.
  • Molly's purring
  • Progress with translation. It's. a. slow. process. My Sweetie is good at it, though so that helps. Can't say the same for myself.
  • Twins saved from abortion because their mom chose life! They're still not born yet so pray for them. Mom's name is Boloro. Meeting with her later this week to give her vitamins and some friendly company. =)
  • Friendly, cheerful strangers who help me when I'm out with the kids. They hold doors open or help me load/unload the little ones from taxis. It's hard to move around with so many layers of clothes on. =)
  • Health so far this winter for all of us.
  • A warm home
  • Spending the day at Mom and Dad's

What about you? Leave a comment and let me know what's been making you smile!

Saw you at Mud and Coffee!!! Love your list!
This morning I'm smiling 'cause I'm snuggled in next to a roaring fire in flannel pa-jay-jays!
I love Saturdays!

Things that have made me smile lately:

orange trees, fresh fruit, strong coffee, new friends, old friends, Evan's perspective on things (He is sooo funny!), the kids will soon be getting their first puppy, being a blessing to others, listening to Haley sing...constantly, homemade vegetable soup, finding treasures in the Word, pink slippers, my husband being thoughtful, helping babies breathe.
