Taking a breath...

Time for a quick break from planning the surprise....truth be told I'm posting this at 1:13 am, which is the first time I've gotten to really sit down at my computer for any length of time the last 24 hours. Running to and fro to get things done as time is running out before 10:30 am on Sunday arrives.

I got home from working all day and early evening on the surprise Thursday and when I got home I was delighted that my daughter had taken the initiative to clean, literally ALL day. Seriously. She did an amazing job. I didn't ask her to do any of it, she just did. When I walked in from work, I stood there and just hugged her and hugged her some more. I would have just stood there and hugged her all night I was so grateful but instead we went to a late night showing of Julie & Julia, and we had a blast! It made me want to fire up the stove and cook something as soon as I got home but seeing as it was 12:45 am when we got home, it was just time to check mail , do a quick blog and go to bed. Specifically in the movie, the beef dish she made looked amazing to me, and the strawberry dish looked good to Savanna. We want to actually try our hand at cooking them.

Thought I'd list a few things I'm grateful for and also a few things I love before I get some zzz's...

I'm grateful that I live in America.

I am so grateful for God's grace that overshadows me every day of my life. I wouldn't make it one more step at any given time without it.

I'm grateful for new opportunities every day.

I'm grateful for peach iced tea.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve God and His people.

I love pens that write real smooth.

I love Dollar General. I go in the store for one thing and come ot with five things but I usually honestly NEED the five things I come out with, but just didn't remember I needed when I went in. (I get a lot of my household products/goods there.)

I love seeing how happy my dog is to see me when I come home.

I love Dove soap.

I love hitting my snooze alarm in the mornings.

I love writing.
