"These are a few of my favorite things!"

My FAVORITE Person in the world, my John
One of my favorite "pick me up" songs is from the movie The Sound of Music!  I love when Maria has all the children in her room and they are dancing and singing and jumping on the bed during a thunder storm naming all of their favorite things!  It's so true that when you focus on the positive you can't get dragged down by the negative (which Sat*n would just love for us to be negative and grumpy and complaining).  This week has been a rainy week and we've been singing, "Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, please shine down on me!"  Poor Julia keeps asking to go to the park, and I want to also!  Today we did see the sun, finally!  But, here are a few of my favorite things...

Me and My FAVORITE son
Mark's red hair, and toothy smile!
My FAVORITE daughter Julia and her blue eyes
Julia's curls, and the Fall leaves
Red roses
Long walks and lazy days spent with loved ones
Watching my daughter play with her cousins and my grandma
Fall flowers picked by my JULIA
Listening to the ocean waves and watching the kids play with Daddy
A favorite thing of mine is Grandma time

All these things make me smile, make me relax, and make me happy to be Kristi.  I feel blessed when I take the time to think of all my favorite things and all the blessings God has given me.  I hope they make you smile too, what are some of your favorite things???
