Here are the things I love most in all the world:
I love my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He is my oxygen and my pulse. I seek to pattern my life after His example. I fail often, and miserably. But He loves me anyway - and that gives me joy!
I love my husband. He makes me laugh when the tears are falling, and gives me such joy in the ways he honours me. He is truly my best friend.
I love my teenagers. They amaze me in their creativity, their giftedness, their unique perspectives. I love to watch them grow and develop their uniqueness. I love my son's hugs and my daughter's glint of mischief.
I love so many other lesser things - my garden. Books. Sunsets. Gluten-free desserts. A kitten's paw. Writing poetry by a crackling fire. Traveling to interesting places. Croatia. A mentally challenging discussion with a close friend. Cooking over an open fire. The sound of a child's laughter. Beautiful music that stirs the soul. Quiet reflection. Plunking out chords on my piano to accompany the lyrics I wrote. Chocolate. Cinnamon tea. Painting.
I love to write! I love to connect to you, my reader. So leave a comment! I'll get back to you, I promise!
