50 Things I Like…

On The Well Trained Mind message board someone started a thread asking people to name 50 things you like. Sort of a count your blessings kind of thing. Here’s mine, in no particular order. I didn’t list family members because that seemed too obvious. Although I do like all of my family, very much. This was more of an exercise in thinking of the little things that I’m thankful for.

2. Listening to my boys play in the other room
3. My 2 yr old pretending to be a monkey
4. Thunderstorms

8. The fact that my husband grocery shopped for us last night.
