I Love Those Moments When...


I love those moments when no one is watching (or maybe I just think no one is watching) and I start dancing and singing (not at the top of my lungs, lest someone hear).

I love those moments when I get chased around the house by my sister because I got marker on her face. She started it by getting marker on my hands. ;)

I love those moments when I start laughing hysterically because someone said something that probably wasn't really that funny. Or those moments when I start laughing again a while later about the same thing. ;)

I love those moments when I give a surprise gift to my little sister and watch her face brighten up with delight and gratitude.

I love those moments when mom randomly walks into the room where I am rapidly typing, stops, and waits for me to look at her. When I finally look, I discover to my great amusement that she is modeling for me, some of her old clothes. ;)

I love those moments of sipping on hot tea on cold windy days.

I love those moments when I smile at someone who looks sad and their face brightens up a bit and they smile back.

I love those moments when me and my sister stand in front of the mirror and she laughs at my poor attempts to raise just one eyebrow at a time. Some day I will do this! (maybe). ;)

I love those moments when I smile at a little boy, he looks at me, I continue to smile, and he finally comes over to me and starts showing me all about his new little truck book. I think I made a new little friend that day! ;)

I love that moment when I start  smiling and mom says, "Why are you smiling? Are you up to mischief?" ahemm! ;)

What about you? What moments in life do you especially enjoy? What makes you smile? What makes you laugh? What do you love? I love comments, so don't be shy!

"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection." Colossians 3:12-14

  1. I love moments when:
    The dinner is smelling so good and the fire is going.
    I get a slobbery kiss from Lydia.
    The wind is blowing crazily outside and the power goes out. Then we might have to have candle-light dinners.
    I smile and wave at some sad looking person and they get happy and wave and smile back.

    We had one night when I tried for about half an hour to master that... both my sisters were rolling on the floor laughing by the end of it, I havent ever gotten any closer to being able to do it :)

    I love rainy days with a good book and hot choclate, best day ever in my mind :D

    Blessings,

  3. Hearing my daughters running around the house chasing each other and laughing.
    Cleaning houses with my girls.
    Cooking with my children.
    Getting a surprise visit from two sons that live far away!
    Tea with friends
    Those aha moments when the Holy Spirit teaches me something wonderful from the Word!
    Family devotions especially when the fire is going and we are all home.
    Hiking or doing something special with my husband and all my children!

  5. I love moments when I am with my sister and I say something completely random and she totally gets what I'm talking about.
    I love those moments when I am surrounded by sweet friends, decorating the ultimate sugar cookies.
    I love moments when I am college and i know that I have an awesome place to come home too!
    I love those moments when I have no doubts about what is ahead!
