title it.

nothing like the sweet smell
of freshly-washed little girl locks
in lavender scented shampoo
nothing like snuggles at bedtime
lots of giggles
and an abundance of baby-style kisses
{wet. very wet}
nothing like stopping time
even if just for the moment
to savor your baby
in all her wonderfulness.

 so much to be thankful for.
lots of big things
but the small things, too
that I sometimes overlook....

{antibiotics for Charity's ear infection}
beautiful fall days
{and the smell of candles burning}
pumpkin baked goods overtaking every bakery
{and my kitchen}
email updates from close friends who live far away
{and hearing about God at work in foreign lands!}
post-season Brewers baseball
{and the joy it brings my husband}
salted caramel mochas
{and a sweet friend who brings one to MomTime for me}

have a super day looking for the big
{and small}
things to be thankful for!
