Thursday Thirteen #19

Yesterday, Lisa asked a group of us to share 10 things that made us smile. I thought that would make a great TT list. Being that it's 5:36am, not much has happened today. So I will share 13 things that made me smile yesterday...

1- Thoughts of my Knight- he makes my heart skip beats.

2- Soaring Amongst The Clouds and her "isms"- she makes up her own words.

3- Still Waters and her logic- I kid you not, she's like Spock in Star Trek. She gets that from my Knight.

4- Daughter of the King's twinkling eyes- her eyes speak volumes.

5- The sound of my G.I. Joe's voice- he is 13 so his voice is sounding deeper, my baby is growing up.

6- My Warrior playing with his beanie babies- he had them sliding down the stair handrail.

7- Watching the Gypsy Kings video of the song, Volare- made me think of Abuela Caky. I remember her singing it once when I was younger.

8- Tuesday night, was the final of Dancing with the Stars. We are big fans of Apolo Anton Ohno. We taped it and watched Tuesday morning. I enjoy watching people dance. I also enjoy dancing. :o)

9- Tuesday night was the finale of The Bachelor- Officer and a Gentleman- the final rose. We taped it and watched it during lunch. The Bachelor picked the young lady we all wanted him to pick. :o)

10- My children are all outside practicing baseball/softball. Seeing them all working together, helping each other out fills my heart with joy.... how can I not smile at that?!

11- The thought that my Knight will be working out of our home tomorrow Friday. I love it when he's home.

12- I finally found a song that I've been looking for quite some time. I didn't know the name to it, but a jazz station played it. They happen to have a website and I was able to find the title. It's called, Europa- Earth's Cry Heaven's Smile by Gato Barbieri. If click on the name and scroll down, you can hear the song. :o) It was one of my favorite songs when I was a teenager. Now that I've found it, I'm going to order it. :o)

13- The thought that one day I'll be with my Lord and Savior.

It's so wonderful when simple little things make us smile, isn't it?

Happy Thirteening!

It's all the things that don't have price tags that make life worthwhile. You're blessed!

(I'll try to answer the "8" meme in a couple of days.)

OK, Lady G, I didn't find time for my TT this week but I sure enjoyed reading yours. I've decided that I must find my own Knight. Have no clue how to do that however. LOL.

You amaze me how you know each and everyone of your children and find the beauty and wonder in each. You go, girl. And I must agree that spending eternity with our Lord keeps that smile on my face. You and I shall talk then. Can't wait.

ps. I see you tagged the jam too. Hehehee.

pps. sorry for the long comment.

Lady G~ said...

Dearest Gatekeeper, no need to apologize for the post. I enjoy reading what others have to say.

I know I'm truly blessed to have such a wonderful Knight. This world would be a much better place if there were more men like him.

The reason I know my children so well is... I've been with them practically 24/7 since they were born! LOL! We homeschool. I can't help BUT know them. Scary part is... they know me too! =:o0

As for tagging jam, I felt compelled to. LOL! He had mentioned last week that he was running out of TT lists. I thought tagging him would help him. :o)

This is a beautiful list, Lady G! What a great reminder to stop and smell the roses, because truly the roses are everywhere!!!

I just love the names you've given your children. So beautiful and descriptive, I'm sure :)

Thanks for the tag! I haven't forgotten, just haven't had a chance to write it yet. I'll let you know when it's posted!!

Happy TT!

I saw the Gypsy Kings in concert in Los Angeles, almost 15yrs. ago. I remember that song. :)

When my husband works from home it's always nice to have him home, I know the feeling.

Beautiful list, and some treasured smiling moments. :)

Life got in the way today of me doing a T13, but I was able to do your "8" meme.

Hope you have a great day!
