A List Maker's Life: things i dream of

Saturday, January 22, 2011

things i dream of

cozy
mittens. steamy showers. sunsets over Lake Michigan

saying the right thing
authenticity. less picky picky perfection. without fear.

listening
more. to the littlest. talking less.

days past
creating on Gram’s kitchen table. the excitement of an engagement 11 years ago. studying abroad.

learning
to be patient. to dance. to eat less.

focusing on
moving forward. our “village.” orphans & widows.

entertaining
a table big enough for our entire small group to gather around. a home big enough for my table. peanut butter pie & diet coke.

heaven on earth
strength of purpose. joy. organization

priorities
teaching my babies to give. teaching them to serve. knowing they know Him.

crafting
piles of colored buttons. floral fabrics. 12x12 layouts

generosity of spirit
to accommodate. to tolerate. to forgive.
