A while back, I wrote a 5 Things Thursday post called “Pet Loves,” where I listed 5 unexpected blessings that just make me a little giddy every time (as opposed to Pet Peeves that irritate the tar out of me every time; although…just in case you’re wondering…the aggressive stranger in Walmart who vigorously rubbed my belly—from behind, while I was reaching up for a produce bag—this week would have definitely topped that list).
And I had an absolute blast reading all of your fun responses.
So, I thought that, instead of focusing on the fact that my mountainous midsection is currently obstructing my ability to reach my keyboard, my ankles could be confused with an elephant’s, and I roll out of bed at least 4 times a night to grace the bathroom with my presence…
I’d scrounge up five more Pet Loves to remind me of just how very good I’ve got it.
So, here are a few things that I really LOVE right now:
The fact that my husband can hear the twins’ heartbeats through my belly (he listens and taps on my belly, and I time the taps every night).
The fact that my kiddos belt out worship songs with me in the car (Ezra and Della and I pretty much had church on the way home from the gym the other day when Matt Redman’s 10,000 Reasons came on the radio; hearing Della hollering, “Ooooooooh my soooooooo!” every time the chorus came on pretty much made my week).
By the way, this is the big, cheesy grin she puts on every time she wants something these days. That girl.
The fact that every. single. time the heat breaks here in E. Texas, and the barest hint of fall is in the air, I can feel my spirits lift and my energy rise…the world feels new again.
Man, I love fall!
(Yes, the high today was in the 90’s, but that’s not the point).
The fact that we jumped on the Duck Dynasty bandwagon. Seriously. Funniest show ever.
happy, happy, happy…
The fact that, regardless of when they come, one way or another, very soon I will have not one but two bundles of baby goodness to hold, two sweet-smelling dark heads to kiss, four sets of tiny fingers and toes to marvel at…
Yup. It’ll be worth the wait.
Honestly, that was so easy, I could keep right on going (I really am stinkin’ blessed!), but now it’s your turn…
What are your Pet Loves right now?
