Many thanks to my friend, Jewel, at Musings from the World of Jewel
for this lovely award. If you don’t know Jewel, she is quite an extraordinary young woman. Working on her college degree, her heart is dedicated to the Lord’s work. She has a true heart for spreading the gospel and reaching the world for Christ.

And, so, I am to list 10 things that make me happy.

1…My sweet daughter-in-love is a 3rd grade teacher. I can count on my phone ringing almost every day between 3:30 and 4:00 as she calls to check in with me.

2…Seeing my nightlight ON if I have to get up during the night. (Someone, who shall remain nameless, thinks I am old enough NOT to need it on and tends to turn it OFF after I go to sleep) It’s not nice to fool with the Queen of the House!

3…I still have a Christmas Tree up in my studio. It is my rustic twig tree decorated with nature items. It makes me happy to look at it…so I think I will, until it doesn’t!

4…Going to a bookstore…with no limits on my time!

5…Watching Joy playing the piano at church.

6…Watching LOST with Alex. We’ve watched it together since the beginning.

7…Having the correct change…to the penny!

8…A Diet Cherry Coke with extra syrup…at Sonic. Shhh! Don’t tell Diet Dr. Pepper.

9…The promise of Spring!

10..My Pop!

Thanks again, Jewel!
