Favorite Things

on December 11, 2011

Tomorrow morning my brother, his buddy and my adorable niece are showing up.  (My Sister-in-Law has to work one more week before she can join us).  They are going to measure and draw, build, and install our kitchen!  Quite suddenly I’m completely overwhelmed by this fact and am terrified, (not that my brother can’t do it, He CAN, I’ve seen his work, it’s amazing!)  but that my vision and idea’s will fall FLAT and when it’s all over I’ll hate it. Or even worse, I’ll love it but 5, 10, or 15 years from now when we move, everyone else who see’s it will hate it.  I’ve never designed a kitchen before, never even owned my own kitchen and here I am, having one custom made, just for me and this amazing house.  So yeah-stressin’ just a bit!

I was washing dishes tonight and grumbling and recognized my attitude was not one of thankfulness and trust, so I started praying for grace, and peace, and LOTS and LOTS of wisdom and then it hit me.  I needed to write a list of my favorite things.  So here it is, in no particular order…

  • My hubby, we’ve been married 7 years today-he is my very favorite person!
  • The landscaping around this house, all I have to do is maintain it!
  • My daughter’s bear snuggles, she runs up and squeezes really hard…it’s amazing.
  • Milo-fell in love with it when I lived in Papua New Guinea and drink it almost every morning now.
  • The smell of citrus, it’s so refreshing.
  • My bed-so comfortable, especially on clean sheet night.
  • Hearing my son say ‘Mama’.  Is there anything sweeter?
  • Watching my daughter be an angel in the Christmas Pageant.  Tonight was her 3rd year and except for some silly faces for the camera she did great!
  • Our trayed ceilings.  I’m a sucker for a tall ceiling.
  • The mocking bird who is nesting in the landscaping by our mailbox.  He/she sings to me all the time.
  • The rake my parents are letting us borrow-you think I’m joking but I”m SO not!  It’s clog free and makes cleaning up from 23! pines almost easy!
  • Christmas-truly, I really love Christmas!

Ok, I’m sure I could go on and on but I’ll stop.  I’m going to reread this list a lot this week and just enjoy all the wonderful things…even when I can’t find a pot to warm soup in for these wonderful guys who are building me a kitchen.

“This is My Kitchen” coming soon so stay posted!

Oh, and who doesn’t love a white dress with a blue sash? (didn’t read the post just LOVED the picture).

Off to my bed, tomorrow comes quickly!
