  • grace
  • Jeff
  • Jeff's job
  • a healthy, loving family
  • healthy pregnancies
  • finding homebirth
  • the ability to be a stay-at-home mom
  • working vehicles
  • fetal hiccups
  • baby kicks
  • 4-year-old charm
  • A 20-month-old who finally holds my hand (or his brother's hand) and walks alongside
  • 7-year-old maturity (or, the 7-year-old version of maturity)
  • that my children's grandparents are all still married to one another
  • parents who demonstrate a loving, lasting marriage
  • nourishing food
  • nourishing chocolate
  • music
  • friends
  • my church family
  • finding so many commonalities with homeschooling moms I've met
  • the ability to visit the house we're having built every weekend
  • the laughter of my children
  • the ever-surprising love of God
  • new mercies every morning

Beautiful list.
I am soo behind on reading your blog. Truthfully, I've been putting off reading it because it was something I knew I wanted to spend a little time doing--you always have such interesting posts and things to say. But here I have a few minutes and I'll get in as much as I can. I just wanted to say I am so glad things are going so well for you. A new house close to being finished, a new baby arriving soon that you are planning to give birth to at home..God has blessed you!
