Happy Valentine's Day

Yeah I know, it's not exactly a unique topic today. I mean, I spent hours racking my brain to come up with it! :)

So in honor of Valentine's Day here's my list of things I love, in no particular order.

I love:
  • God.  His grace is the only reason I'm still hear today!!!!
  • my husband, even when he makes me crazy. I love him for loving me and for fighting for our marriage when it didn't look like there was anything left to fight for.
  • my kids who are my reason for getting out of bed when I don't always feel like doing so.  As much as they can make a momma wanna drink, they are some of the sweetest, smartest little men I've ever met.  (if they could just be a little quieter life would be golden)
  • my family. Families are complicated, at least mine is, and sometimes (or lots of times) they cause us heart ache but mine is amazing and I don't know what I'd do with out them, imperfections and all.  
  • my friends.  I often wish I had the kinds of friends I see every couple days but my real life friends aren't like that.  But when we DO get together, there's usually so much laughing that my stomach hurts.
  • my online friends.  I seriously don't think I can explain the bond you can have with someone you've never even met but shared so much with.  If you haven't experienced it, it sounds crazy, I KNOW, but it has been a wonderful blessing to me.
  • photography.  It's the best feeling in the world when you capture the perfect photo.
  • writing/blogging.  I feel in love with writing back in high school but haven't done much aside from newsletter type writing since then.  I started blogging as a scrapbook of sorts to share with our family afar.  But now its my favorite outlet and therapy.
  • shopping.  It's an addiction really I think.  When I can't afford to do it anywhere else I hit the dollar store where I don't do so much damage while feeding the need.
  • reality TV. Yes, I admit I watch it, the lowest  forms of it too.   The uglier and meaner the people are, the more I love it.  I think it's the whole, it makes me feel better about myself type thing.
  • days off work.  Yeah I think the work week should only be 3 days.  Who's with me.
  • sleeping in.  Which doesn't happen often enough at all.
  • playing at the park.  I swear I could be truly happy if I could live life doing nothing but taking my kids to places like the park, the zoo, museums etc.  There is no better day to me.  (after sleeping in of course)
  • singing really loud even though I'm not very good.  Even my older boys have figured out I can't really sing and will ask me to not sing during songs they really like.  But too bad for them, I usually sing all the time in the car and anywhere else where I don't think anyone will hear me that I didn't either marry or birth.
  • hugs and kisses. From the right people of course.  I get sad as my boys (Timmy especially) get to the age where PDA's aren't always allowed.  Thank goodness I have a few good years left with Bryan!!!
Now it's your turn...what do you truly love???
