So, for the sake of balance, I decided I'd post something a little happier. And since I recently posted about things that were getting on my nerves, here's a list of things that are making me smile lately.
+ Erin, Libby, Teresa, and Jen
To whom would I complain if I didn't have these girls? They've listened patiently to my boy woes for ages now, and if they're getting tired of it, well, at least they haven't told me so.
+ Work at Work
Amazing, right? Finally, my inbox is full again. I have stuff to do! Egad! I have purpose again.
+ The Narrow Path
The past few weeks/months have been a bit of a struggle for me on the God-front. I've had a hard time staying focused and making good choices, but through lots of prayer and some accountability, I've got myself back on the right track. It feels really good, and God keeps revealing himself to me over and over, and I keep realizing how fortunate I am to know him at all.
Okay, so it's not so much the knitting itself, but it's been fun getting to know my girlfriends better over needles and yarn. And they're teaching me so much about scarf-making. It's not their fault I can't count stitches. One day, I'll make something that isn't all wavy and holey.
+ Football Season
It's about that time again, and that makes me smile when I think about it. I love football season. There's something happy about football season that just gets me excited. The chill in the air, the painted faces... well, whatever. And this year, I'll be the biggest supporter for Ben Logan Middle School (aka, Rob's team), so I'm broadening my horizons. I think I might even learn a little bit about the rules along the way.
I know you were waiting for this one. I don't want to sound like a sucker, so I thought I'd omit this one, but he does make me smile now and then, so who am I to try to lie to myself and to my readers? We've weathered some storms, that's for sure, but somehow he still makes me smile... when he smiles at me, or holds my hand during a prayer, or sings the Beatles in a falsetto, or grabs my butt in the stairway... ha.
+ And this just in...
I just dropped an M&M down my shirt (I occasionally miss my mouth) and it didn't come out the bottom. So I'm going to have to cut this short to visit the restroom and find the candy that's hiding out under my clothes. It's stupid, but it made me laugh. I figured it fit today's list.
