Many thanks to my friend, Jewel, at Musings from the World of Jewel
for this lovely award. If you don't know Jewel, she is quite an extraordinary young woman. Working on her college degree, her heart is dedicated to the Lord's work. She has a true heart for spreading the gospel and reaching the world for Christ.

And, so, I am to list 10 things that make me happy.

1...My sweet daughter-in-love is a 3rd grade teacher. I can count on my phone ringing almost every day between 3:30 and 4:00 as she calls to check in with me.

2...Seeing my nightlight ON if I have to get up during the night. (Someone, who shall remain nameless, thinks I am old enough NOT to need it on and tends to turn it OFF after I go to sleep) It's not nice to fool with the Queen of the House!

3...I still have a Christmas Tree up in my studio. It is my rustic twig tree decorated with nature items. It makes me happy to look at I think I will, until it doesn't!

4...Going to a bookstore...with no limits on my time!

5...Watching Joy playing the piano at church.

6...Watching LOST with Alex. We've watched it together since the beginning.

7...Having the correct the penny!

8...A Diet Cherry Coke with extra Sonic. Shhh! Don't tell Diet Dr. Pepper.

9...The promise of Spring!

10..My Pop!

Thanks again, Jewel!

Lovely list, and they every one sound like what I know of you.

I first thought it was a class you were teaching, and I was ready to sign up! (Wouldja consider coming out of retirement for just a FEW classes?)

I have nightlights throughout the house. I just love them! I am looking for a twig tree, that is awesome that yours is still up.
I love lost but I don't have anyone watching with me :(
Congratulations on your award.

My ten things:

My grandaughters.

The feeling I have AFTER I exercise.

Sins forgiven.

Fountain Diet Coke in a styrofoam cup.

My husband cooking for me.

My family.

The warmth of the kidding.

The scales going DOWN on Monday mornings.

Gas logs on a cool night.

A road trip.

You are very deserving of the award. I have loved your blog for a long time.

What a great list! I like a night light too! Usually it's the t.v. set on a sleep timer. So when I get up at night, I fall all over the place!
