#1--I have a GREAT hair stylist who gives me AWESOME hair cuts!! I know that sounds sort of shallow, but let me tell you, when you have really short hair, it's painful if it's a bad cut. A good hair cut can lift your spirits so much! :)
#2--Date night with my hubby! I love that Devin is trying to be more intentional about having date night together. He works so hard for both work and church...and I think sometimes he feels like he leaves his family in the dust (partly because the kids are always telling him that!)... However, this couldn't be further from the truth. I know that he works that hard because he loves us! It would be terrible if he didn't have a job, or didn't want to serve others. I keep trying to tell the kids that! But he really HAS been trying to do more with us all. He is such a good man and I love him so very much!
#3--CLAIRE said, "I really love living here! The people at church are so nice, and we have a nice house. It's really easy to live here." WOW!! I honestly NEVER thought I'd hear that from anyone in my family, least of all her! Talk about a MIRACLE! It made my heart soar to hear that. It also reminded me that comments like that aren't going to happen all the time, that we all have good and bad days, but that when those sorts of comments DO come out, well, it's something to be celebrated. AND it tells me that they do actually like it here--and we will most certainly miss it when we leave! It's so important to make the most of every day.
