The joy of counting blessings is the evidence of God's goodness

Brother in law says i can't stop smiling.  He may just be right.  My heart has taken to smiling this weekend.  I'm confident the last weeks will successfully finish wedding prep.  I truly have so much to be grateful for.  

building anticipation to be wife of my love
one stop mattress shopping
interest, care, support, and help of a church community
productive sewing
stresses that are a fading memory
boxes of hydrangea filling the back seat
whispered tenderness filling my ears
early early morning logging hours on the couch in pjs
weeds pulled and mulch spread
shrubs trimmed and yard mowed
early evening glow of dropping sun
shine buffed nails
successful waxing test
decreasing shopping list
the effectiveness of 100% aloe vera gel
my love's whimsical dreaming
plans settling into place
dessert test success
my love's email saying he misses me
