Despite all the great (and very appreciated!) gifts I got this Christmas, there are a lot of things in life that no amount of money can buy:
1- Getting up earlier than everyone in the family, making a cup of coffee, and spending quality, uninterrupted time with the Lord
2- The feeling you get after you go running
3- A husband who tells me that I look most beautiful when I wake up in the morning with no make up on and my hair all a mess - never mind that I am wearing a spit-up stained t-shirt to round out the look!
4- Healthy Children
5- A friend who calls you just to see how your day went
6- The feeling you get after you do something you know the Lord wanted you to do - even when you absolutely didn't want to do it
7- Pulling on a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans and not only can you button them, but you don't have any "stuff" hanging over the top
8- Getting both kids down for a nap at the same time!
9- The feeling of having a nice, clean, and organized home
10- Being silly with your kids and messing up that nice, clean, and organized home
11- Knowing you have people in your life who "get you"
