Simple Pleasures from Yankee Territory

We had a nice Christmas Day!  I hope you did too.

A few sweet things we've enjoyed lately...

Celebrating His birth!  Knowing and understanding in some small amount the gift He offered to us just because He loves us so much.
Wii-ing with the kids.  (I am soooo bad at video games but the wii fit ones are really fun!)
Finding jeans for me that fit, look cute and were $14.99!
Getting to buy my own copy of Grace Based Parenting that I can write in as I read it.
Robert hanging my bird feeder up again so I can see the little creatures come and go!  (It's been in a different spot since we got new windows in September and I've missed the visibility of it.)
Rockin' in the car with Mattie to the Oak Ridge Boys Christmas!
My kids being so good in the car.  They really couldn't be better road trippers.
Knowing and resting in the fact that God knows my needs and really will meet them.
Getting to spend today with my family in an after Christmas celebration I wasn't planning on!
Sisters.  Need I say more?  :)

God is good.  And even in the middle of a challenging time, there is so much to be thankful for.  Help me focus on that, Lord!
