It's the Little Things

The little things are big. And, of course, so are the big things. And I am hugely grateful for all of them!

This list is all over the map and not necessarily complete, but right now I am thankful for…
  • Music.
  • Five days without car lines, buses, or lunches to make.
  • Coffee.
  • A visit with family—and even better, family members who love to cook!
  • Skype.
  • Working with fantastic, talented authors on a daily basis.
  • Our dog.
  • Sunshine and cool breezes.
  • Hope.
  • Sarcasm. Not really. I actually don’t appreciate sarcasm at all.
  • My phone.
  • That my body has held out so far. Cross your fingers for me—Tough Mudder’s December 1!
  • Sarasota.
  • Learning, teaching, enlightening, becoming.
  • The stars.
  • That a few bags of mulch make our yard look like we take care of it.
  • Stories.
  • The phenomenal school communities our children have.
  • Our church.
  • That I’m finally learning how to say no sometimes.
  • Bodies of water.
  • All the amazing friends that grace my life—from the trenches of small-town life, from camp, from W&L, from theaters everywhere, from the trenches of mom life, and from all the other parts of this crazy journey called my life. I wouldn’t be here without you all!
  • Facebook. (see previous item)
  • Fascination.
  • My siblings. You’re all freaks, and I love you.
  • Talents.
  • That two one-of-a-kind, brilliant, passionate people joined our family. Watching our children grow beats any other paycheck in the world.
  • Imagination.
  • That my husband has been my best friend for nearly twenty years. He still makes me feel young, safe, and able to do anything.
  • Love.
