Little Things......

This is going to be short and sweet. Just a few little things that have made me happy lately.....

1) The Hymns & my flute
                    I LOVE to play my flute! Every week my band homework is to practice for 1 hour. I usually end up waiting until the last day and practicing that hour all at once- not enjoying myself, but counting down the minutes until I could call it quits. I mean, honestly, who wants to practice an hour of Jolly old Sleigh Ride or Midnight Sky? I have a really good friend who recently asked me if I would like to play with her in the church's Christmas Program; I said yes, not realizing how much I would love playing the hymns. As I opened up the book to practice I realized how many of the songs I could play. If you play an instrument, you know how cool it is to play songs that you recognize. It makes it 10 times better when those songs are Hymns- songs that we sing to praise the Lord! Instead of practicing the bare minimum of 1 hour I practiced 1 1/2 hours! And I enjoyed every minute of it!
2) Karen Kingsbury Books

Karen Kingsbury
            I have only read 2 so far, but they have been SO good. She is a Christian author and so far all of her books have been completely clean. I have read: Leaving (The Bailey Flanningan Series), and The Bridge. Both AWEOSOME books! You can get to her website with a list of all her books here.

3) Snow!!
We got our first snow that was longer than 5 minutes today! Sure, it hasn't even snowed a whole inch, but for Kentucky that is a good amount- especially for before Thanksgiving! If you live in Alaska (please comment- I have never known someone who has :D) or somewhere else where it snows a lot, you are probably laughing your head off- but this is the girl who lives where we only got one day off last year for ice- not even snow! So I am hoping that tomorrow, instead of taking my math test and turning in my homework; I am sleeping in, drinking hot chocolate, and taking pictures of the
beautiful snow. Wish me luck!
So much for a short post! What has made you happy lately?
Have a great night1


  1. I am jealous of your snow. lol :D And I love playing church songs. It is so fun! Those books sound awesome, too. I am going to have to look into those. Thank you for sharing what makes you happy! It makes me happy! :)

  2. I do not live in Alaska, but snow is pretty normal around here. As is cold. We've actually had school closed a couple times just because of the cold. And driving in snow is super fun... Thank goodness us locals are used to it! I was driving behind a car from Florida the other day and he was going *super* slow and the roads weren't even bad. It was kinda funny :) Anywho! That was random of me :)
