Hello Monday

I love Monday mornings, I love looking back on the weekend of simple pleasures and looking ahead to the joys of a new week...

1. Snuggling on the couch under the blankets with Dave while watching a movie.

2. Having a great Sunday, unplugged.

3. My cozy Sunday afternoon nap.

4. A sweet date night with my man.

5. The yummiest of lunches, those Red Robin burgers, oh my.

6. Spring is here, longer days, sunny days, neighbors out working in their yards.

7. Calvin hanging with great friends all weekend.

8. Seeing fruits of our parenting, and God working in their lives.

9. Making breakfast for Sunday night dinner. Pancakes just taste better at night.

10. The process and results of scrubbing the kitchen floor.

11. A big hug and 'I love you' from a sweet girl visiting at church yesterday.

12. Being cozy and comfortable, but also feeling cute at church.

13. That early morning shower, so refreshing. I feel so sad for people around the world that don't have the benefit of a daily clean water shower.

14. Finally having the strength to jump on the scale and finding out I haven't gained any of my weight back. Yay!

15. Enjoying a movie together as a whole family last night.

16. So much laughter in my family, it's wonderful.

17. Long walk Saturday morning and getting another one this morning.

18. Looking forward to Ladies Biblestudy and Small Group on Wednesday, and hanging with friends this weekend.

19. Feeling joyful on this Monday, love the fresh start to a new week, feeling refreshed and ready to conquer what's ahead.

20. Slowly embracing my new Keurig coffee machine, still have small twinges of buyers remorse but loving that Sweetie can have his decaf and I get my caffeine!!!

Happy Monday, enjoy and simple pleasures around you and thank God for the blessings.
