Things that make me smile

I took Toby to a new groomer this morning. It only took her an hour to groom him. He's wearing a pumpkin bandana, and he's as soft and fluffy as can be. :)While I was taking an early morning walk I spotted a large box full of cookbooks that had been put out for the garbage man by one of my neighbors. The two on top just happened to be Gooseberry cookbooks. I couldn't resist rescuing them from the box and bringing them home with me.We received an unexpected gift card in a Thanksgiving card from a church family. What a blessing! It's just enough to cover all of the drinks I am supposed to supply for our Thanksgiving meal.My "secret encourager" at school gave me this lovely basket of goodies. My house is smelling very "pumpkin-y" right now. What things are making you smile today?

All your things are smile-worthy in my book! Love that gift basket of pumpkin-y things, and what a find with those cookbooks!

Things that make me smile . . . hearing from either one or both of my boys away at college; my husband seeking me out just to give me a hug; my daughter showing me her latest jewelry creation; seeing extended-family pictures on Facebook; getting a Christmas card in the mail already! :)

what nice things to bring a smile to your face.
I am actually in a kind of despondant mood :( but....I know this too shall pass! (it's based on something i just posted the other day about friendships)...I know I just need to trust the Friend who is above all friends: JESUS!!

but...my teenager is making me smile...she is packing on her own for our thanksgiving trip to grandparents and actually is ahead of me! I did not need to remind her at all....she started packing last nite! thank you Lord for my teenager.....!

Wow! Who would want to throw away those awesome cook books! I would be so tickled to have found some.

I found a baby exersaucer for the garbage man once. Right when Tiny Boy could use it, and me too!

It is now being enjoyed by another lady in my church.
