The Little Things

It's the "little things" that add up to happiness, I think. Little things like...

-Watching Eli sleep at night, all curled up on his belly with his hands underneath his face, bottom in the air, little feet crossed just right.

-A visit with an old friend who is more like a sister.

-A daily, sleepy kiss goodbye from Eric as he leaves for work every morning (at 4:30am!).

-Seeing pictures of a friend's precious newborn baby, and knowing the sheer joy that awaits her as she raises her new daughter.

-A cloudy afternoon.

-The way Eli says "frisbee"- "beebees."

-Peaches from a local orchard, both in and out of homemade cobbler.

-A gooooood new book and a glass of vino verde.

-Laughing at an "oldie but goodie" movie with Eric.

-Conversations with sisters.

-Quiet moments with the Lord before the day gets going.

Wow- when I stop to list all the "little things," the list really gets going! Let's do this more often...

I love your list of "little things" - what's your recipe for homemade cobbles? I am looking for a good one.

Oops - I meant to write cobbler.

I LOVE Pioneer Woman's blackberry cobbler- it's on her website. It's fantastic, as are most all of her recipes! :)
