  7. laughing over the fact that the first advent candle that I was so dreading signifies hope
  8. sparkly tissue paper for wrapping a gift
  9. getting a ride home
  10. spending the evening being creative, and assembling the first half of the Jesse tree ornaments from this blog, for the way I've chosen to uniquely recognize Advent this year.  I printed the ornaments and sat on the floor of my bedroom for a couple hours with various scrapbook supplies scattered around me, making the ornaments unique and personal and pretty.
  11. a surprise few minutes of skype with a dear friend who is currently traveling
  12. recognizing growth and being surprised and blessed to discover it
  13. sitting here, propped in bed, and staring at the map of the world and "wall of happy" across from me

  15. a weekend that was primarily quiet and full of restful things
  16. escapist television on dvd
  17. a mug of tea
  18. sweet smelling oil in my oil burner
  19. making choices out of care and restraint
  20. finding reasons to laugh, and feel joy
