It's going to be a good day...

Well, it probably was until I said that, huh? *wink*

So, let me tell you about my day so far...

I woke up and looked at the clock and it read 8:02.

8:02!!!!!

Can you believe that? MY children were both still asleep and I was snuggling with my husband! At 8:02 a.m. My hubby must have felt me lift my head off of the pillow because his arms tightened around me.

Chris: "I love you."
Me: "It's 8:02!!!"
Chris: (laughs) "I say I love you and you say it's 8:02?"
Me: "Well, I know you know that I love you, but I'm pretty sure you didn't know that we're still laying here in silence after 8:00 am and the kids are actually here, too!"

It's already a good day right there! Church was last night, so today is family time, from start to finish. The Broncos are playing, the weather is nice and cool but still warm, and we have nothing on the calendar except for spending time together.

It's now 8:44 and my kiddos are both snuggled under the blankets in our bed watching cartoons and giggling out loud every once in a while. Mitchell starts giggling, Georgia looks from the tv to his face, decides that she should be laughing, and joins in. I look over at both of them and can't help it, so I join in. Laughter really is contagious.

I'm sitting two feet away from them at the computer, and we're all in our Broncos stuff. I'm actually peacefully catching up on email, blogs, and, much to my husband's dismay, the eBay auctions I've bid on that are ending this morning. (There are some super cute jeans I am trying to get for Miss G! Sweet -- just won one of them!) I haven't had to say "Stop that," "Put that down", "Shhhhh," "Be nice," or "Just a minute," once. They are just content to just lay there together.

My husband? Where is he? My beloved Starbucks-hater is currently in the drive-thru line getting me an iced coffee. I didn't even ask! He just said he'd be back, and I know what that means! As he was leaving, he announced that he would be making breakfast upon his return. He is making his awesome breakfast burritos for us -- yummmmmmmmy!

Today's already been a wonderful day...I can't wait to see what the rest of the day brings!

Thank you, Lord, for my wonderful family. Thank you for opening my eyes in such a gentle, comforting way this morning.

"The Broncos are playing,"

My husband said to tell you about a bumper sticker we saw the other day: "God has to be a Broncos fan. Why else would he have made sunsets orange and blue?" :D

Oh, what a wonderful morning! I love when God blesses us in little ways like that & when (as you are doing) take the time to realize it's a little gift from Him!

GO BRONCOS!!

That is SOME HUSBAND you've got there! From the "I love you" first thing out of his mouth, to the Starbucks to the breakfast, you've got quite the man! :)

I have to brag on mine now... pancake lunch after church, money to run to starbucks with a friend ("here, this is for you AND Rose..., and a homemade Mexican dinner, without me having to do one thing. I told him tonight, "I love a man that knows how to cook!" :) The weekends are great for that.

We are blessed! There aren't that many out there like ours, are there?

What a great morning! And your husband fetching you Starbucks...now that's true love!! :)

I love it when my kiddies sleep in...it doesn't happen very often, but when they do and it's a weekend morning and my husband is next to me...there is NOTHING better!!

Hope the rest of your day was as good as your a.m.!!
