21 graces

I did not post last week, but I realized that, after a couple of months of writing these weekly lists, I am always mentally collecting things to add to my "21 graces", and I seek to find goodness in less-than-ideal circumstances.  Thank you, Jordy!

1. Seeing and spending time with aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. whom I hadn't seen in years
2. Finally meeting the wives and babies of said cousins
3. The overflowing generosity of others
4. Clear, cold, dry(!), beautiful West Texas weather
5. Singing hymns from a hymnal
6. Driving through charming (and tiny) West Texas towns

7. Sleeping in
8. Catching up on laundry
9. Take-out from my favorite Mexican food restaurant
10. Minivans...how on earth did we go this long without owning one?!
11. Louisiana rest stops


12. Coming home to a clean house
13. An unexpected flower delivery

14. Sydney getting a spot in the preschool of our choice
15. Lunch outside
16. Sydney choosing Wendy (from "Peter Pan") to "adopt" from the Disney store, rather than a Princess

17. Carter's
18. Realizing this weekend is Daylight Savings Time (I can't wait for more daylight in the evenings!)
19. A morning to myself to go to the dentist, the coffee shop, and two libraries
20. Spending the post-nap afternoon outside (always with the doll stroller in tow these days)

21. Family

16. Wendy & Syd sort of look alike!!
17. I avoid Carters, seriously, it's so dangerous!
18. YES!!! I can't WAIT for Day light savings!

Thanks, Case! Haha...the minivan leap is a big one. I think you'll look great driving a Camero in a couple of years!
