I love lists. If I get behind on any random project and am feeling stressed out I know the cure. It’s a bathtub and a notepad. Hot water and a long list is the perfect way to get a plan and then get some sleep. I also love lists of things I love. If you don’t like lists, you probably want to skip this post. But if you are like me at all, here are a few of my favorite things…
I love sounds. I love music too but I’m not actually talking about music. I love random sounds. I love the sound gravel makes when you walk on it. I love the sound my dog makes when she jumps on the bed. I love the sound that the river outside makes when it is swollen with spring rain. Its a mix of rushing water and boulders smacking into each other. I love how it sounds when my daughter sneezes. I like the sound of espresso steam.
I love tastes: Cinnamon Rolls on Christmas morning. Homemade Spaghetti Sauce. Warm raspberries straight off the bush. Mint and lime.
I love books: A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemmingway. Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. The Great Divorce by CS Lewis.
I love movies: Sabrina, Joy Luck Club (I liked the book too), While You Were Sleeping (I can quote the whole thing. Pitiful, I know), Ocean’s Eleven, and any movie whatsoever about an underdog who wins.
I love a good non-profit organization: Shared Hope, Open House, Voice of the Martyrs, Ndengera Foundation
I love rain. I love wood fires. I love hard wood floors. I love huge trees. I love giant cranes. I love my husband. I love my daughter. I love my life.
What do you love??
