5 Good Things

On Friday of last week, Rachel Anne of Home Sanctuary challenged us to NOTICE the good things around us and appreciate them. She awarded our small things points for noticing, thinking about, imagining, and intently picturing at least 5 good things in our life. How would you describe them?
I wrote this list last week but decided to save it for my Company Girl post. I hope you enjoy it.

I notice a positive change in my step-daughter since color guard practice started last week. Not only is she getting back into tip-top shape, but even her attitude is better. She is excited and enthusiastic about her performances, and it spills over into other aspects of her life. She is bubbly and agreeable.
I've noticed my son is very loving. At 14, he is not ashamed to kiss and hug me bye in front of his friends.I notice a difference in his voice, deeper than it sounded just three months ago. He's becoming a man right before my eyes. His sister says he even has fuzz on his chin.

I notice my daughter's eyes are a combination of blue, green, and gray in different shades. The colors she wears tend to bring out her eyes. I notice her light freckles on her nose and cheeks that give her that girl-next-door appearance and the natural highlights in her hair, various shades of brown and blonde that you can only get from nature.

My husband. He's a good man. Lately I've noticed the curve of his biceps. Very sexy. And the scattered grays in his beard that make him look so handsome.

Right now, I notice the flowers that my husband bought me, beautiful lilies. They burst with deep shades of pink which melt into white. They are quite lovely. And all this makes me happy and grateful.

What a sweet family! I think it's so good to stop and take stock of what is good, especially during the times the bad seem overwhelming.
