100 joys

Today's post by Mandie is a must-read.  Today she began posting the first of 100 things that bring her joy during the month of December.  I think this is a great idea for many reasons, namely because this can be such a frustrating time of year if you allow it to be, and because I want to celebrate all the good things going on in my life right now.  The ones that I tend to overlook.  So tonight, I'll post my first two joys.  (PS - check out this post for more information about the 100Joys project.)

Joy 1: Baby pictures of Mike.  I can't help but smile (and daydream) when I look at them.  

Joy 2: Angel tree giving.  Mike and I each chose a child from the angel tree at church.  I'm having lots of fun shopping for the little girl I picked - I can't wait to go to Target this week and finish up.

Tonight's Christmas song is Andrea Bocelli's Adeste Fideles.  He has such an amazing voice.  It makes me think of midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.

that's a great idea! I'm particularly not a Christmas fan and this is a time of the year that I always hope will fly away fast. Maybe if I did a project like that it could help me feel better, I'm gonna check that out, thanks!!
love your first two, especially the cute baby pics ;-)
