Finer Things Friday: The List Goes On

Is it just me, or when you make a point of counting your blessings… there seem to be more to be counted?  Infinite!  (Blessings 1-11 and 12-23)

24. A long-anticipated phone call with a friend, and a baby who napped through the entire visit.

25. Root beer float with extra ice cream.

26. Surprises out the window ~ Our neighbor tilled our garden!

27. Five days of spring break and five days of beautiful weather, all the same 5 days.

28. Spring breezes blowing through open windows.

29. Big bowls of stove-popped popcorn topped with real butter and salt.

30. A recliner “just big enough for both of us, Mom!”

31. Farm-fresh eggs again after too many winter weeks without.

32. Three children playing together, nicely.

33. A virtual Safe House of women, supporting one another with prayer and laughter.

34. First bites… avocado.

35. Wholesome family movies.  We thoroughly enjoy Kit Kittredge: An American Girl over, and over, and over.

36. Dancing through the end of movie credits.

37. Evidence of spring in the budding trees and greening of the grass.

  1. I second farm fresh eggs. Once you go to those, you simply can not stomach the store bought kind any more.

  2. #29 — mmm, yes, with a big Dr. Pepper
    #32 – couldn’t agree more! “How pleasant it is when brothers (and sisters 🙂 ) dwell together in unity”

  3. I love this…so refreshing! 🙂

  4. oh my, you’ve been keeping that cutie under wraps! I think we need more baby photos. I can’t believe he’s big enough to sit in the high chair and eat real food. I feel like it’s been only a few weeks ago I was anxiously checking for news he’d arrived!

  5. Great list, mama! A sleeping baby is a beautiful thing, especially when you can get stuff done! 🙂

  6. Love long phone calls!

  7. Oh my gosh, but he is so cute!!! I love the little rolls of baby fat on his arms – my daughter had them, too. So, so, so cute!

  8. I enjoy popping in on your sweet blog and found a post to link up just so I could be part of the blog hop. And, BTW, I’ve enjoyed Kit Kittredge myself! Blessings!

  9. It’s not just you. 😉 You’ll be cresting 1000 before you know it.

  10. We love the American Girl movies here (well at least the girls!!) We have every one and we watch them over and over, too! If you haven’t seen the rest, you need to! (Molly, Felicity, Chrissa, and Samantha!) Just eagerly awaiting more to come out!!!

  11. We love the movie Kit as well! I think it gives our children a great perspective of life during the depression. And the mobile librarian- well, she is just too funny.

  12. You are right – it is so important to count our blessings! It is so easy to overlook the little things when the little things end up being the most important!

  13. I’m not picky. I love natural products

  14. I love all of the birds singing outside on a warm sunny day.

    I am sharing my recipe for Banana And Chocolate Layered Dessert. This recipe is gluten free, but it can be made using “regular” flour if you don’t have issues with gluten. This recipe can also be made with other types of fruit if you would rather.
    Thanks for hosting!

  15. What a handsome little dude you’ve got there :)! I’m praising God for freedom and health this finer things Friday. Thanks for the linky and continuing to always encourage me, Amy. Have a blessed day!

  16. I love #24….uninterrupted time with a friend or hubby is SO nice!!

  17. Love receiving your posts in my email box! That way I don’t have to go “looking” for you! I remember my early days as a mom, and it’s very refreshing to read all the posts!

  18. Hi Amy! Since you linked to me, I’m linking to you. Great to “meet” you!

  19. Three children playing together nicely….makes me VERY thankful 🙂
