*Wearing my Snowflake Princess crown just because it makes me, well, smile!

*Getting messages on facebook and status alerts on my phone from folks in Swaziland.

*Newborn babies and their sweet little expressions, like the one on the face of a new baby boy born to a family in our church. Congratulations to Wendi, Wes, and all the rest --- he's absolutely adorable!

*The things God is teaching my children and then reading about some of that God growth in my Betsie's blog:

*Hearing Raffi sing BABY BELUGA and remembering how I could sing that same song and stop David's tears when he was just a little fellow.

*Sweet words of encouragement and love from precious girlfriends.

*Getting an email from the ministry we've applied to saying they've received our paperwork, are gathering information from our references, enjoyed hearing about how we came to God and felt the call to missions, and will be letting us know soon what the next step is in this journey to live and love in Swaziland.

*Waking up and just feeling overwhelmed with joy because God is so very, very good.

"You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."

Psalm 16:11
