A few of my favourite things

I’m linking up again with Five Minute Fridays.

This week, the theme is ‘a few of my favourite things’.


OK, so I write whole posts on this. I am blessed to be lucky enough to have many many blessings to count in my life, and I try to do so often. I write whole posts on this very theme.

I live a life full of favourite things.

I wake up in a home I love, full of silly and laughter and cosy, curled up next to the man I love. I trot out of the door to Starbucks to pick up coffee (which I love), before walking (which I love) to school (which I love) to meet the boys (who I love) who I teach (which I love).

I think to many people my life might seem timid or small or maybe even unimportant, but I do love it. In long chats with friends, in late night cuddles, in silly adventures, in cups of tea on rainy days, in postcards from far away, I see glimpses of beauty, of wonder, of love.

These little moments add up to my little life. A life of promise and wonder, and one that I cherish every day. I’ve been sad, and angry, and lonely before…and I wake up every morning and praise God for the privilege of living this little life, full of joy and kindness and wonder.

    It's amazing how God uses the little things (and the people others view as little) to make a big difference. Thanks for sharing:)
