These are a few of my.....

 .....favorite things (in no particular order of importance)......

  • our GRANDsons telling me they love me and asking their Momma "do we get to see Nannie today?"
  • our precious daughter who will never, ever know how proud I am of her...and her hubby
  • Pappy paying me a compliment (usually on SONday morning when I'm dressed up for church)
  • crawling into bed on clean sheets
  • crawling into bed and Pappy has already turned my electric blanket on and my side is toasty warm
  • somebody telling me how much I mean to them
  • getting a call out of the blue from a friend asking me to pray for them....simply because they trust me....what an honor and privilege
  • somebody leaving such a precious comment on my blog
  • when a little chickadee lands in the grapevine wreath hanging in the computer window
  • filling up the bird feeder and watching the cardinals and chickadees and the doves
  • the first snowfall of winter
  • thinking about the happiness our new GRANDchildren are going to bring to our lives
  • getting a text from my brother thanking me for something he noticed I had done
  • logging onto my blogs and seeing the little snowflakes falling
  • turning on the radio and one of my very favorite songs playing
  • finding just the right crochet pattern for just the right person
  • hearing from an old friend unexpectedly
  • realizing that some friendships weren't meant to work out....but learning from the experience
  • friends who  continue to love me even when I admit to wearing a shoe of a kind for an entire day without noticing....;-)
  • Pappy always having something "chocolate" hidden for those times when a craving hits me
  • coming across a note my Mamaw wrote me over 20 years ago and feeling all the love I have for her come flooding back
  • spending time with my Momma since her heart attack and thanking God that He spared her life
  • Pappy's sister....who I claim as my own....because she's so precious to me
  • getting a phone call from somebody checking on us because they know Pappy lost his job and they care
  • those who have supported Wise Old Owl Designs by purchasing a few of my handmade things along the way
  • meeting my sweet friend for lunch every couple of months (it's already been too long since CHRISTmas!!!)
  • knowing in my heart of hearts that my precious Jesus....died for my sins....and loves me.  I've laid claim to Jeremiah 29:11-13....and hold onto His promise of a future and a HOPE!!!
Psalm 21:6
Surely you have granted Deb unending blessings 
and made her glad with the joy of your presence.
