Simple acts of Love

Things that I love about my mornings

The way my husband wakes me up. He rubs my face and gives me a soft kiss on the cheek.

Getting my "Good Morning" email from my daughter who lives in Texas.

and my "Good Morning" text from my son who is in the Navy.

These simple acts of love, bless my heart the most.

Last but not least

Opening God's Word and learning all I can from it.

My natural Highs

Singing, singing, singing Praises to our Awesome Lord and Savior.
Laughing so hard my face hurts.
A hot shower.
No lines at the supermarket.
Taking a drive on a pretty road.
Hearing my favorite song on the radio.
Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
Hot towels fresh out of the dryer.
Clean sheets
Butter pecan Ice cream in a waffle cone
A bubble bath with a good book.
Giggling.
A good conversation.
The beach
Finding a 20 dollar bill in my coat from last winter.
Laughing at myself.
Looking into my families eyes and knowing they Love me.
Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
Having someone tell me that I’m beautiful.
Laughing with FRIENDS
Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about me.
Waking up and realizing I still have a few hours left to sleep.
Making new friends or spending time with old ones.
Sweet dreams.
Hot coffee
Swinging on my front porch swing.
Making chocolate chip cookies for my boys and my grandchildren..
Holding hands
Running into an old friend and realizing that some things (good or bad) never change.
Watching the expression on someone's face as they open a much desired present from you.
Watching the sunrise.
Getting out of bed every morning and being grateful for another beautiful day.
Knowing that somebody misses me.
Getting a hug from someone I care about deeply.
Knowing I’ve done the right thing, no matter how badly it hurts.

amel,

I put the hardest for me at the bottom of the list. When every thing is all said and done and I know I have done the right thing, I am on top of the world.

sj,

I forget too! After I received my text from my son that morning, I remembered what a blessed woman I am.
