for chilled Diet Coke.
for the way my daughter's hair curls in the rain.
for the hiccups and kicks inside my womb.
for the absurd giggles of siblings who were fighting only minutes ago.
for Apple products.
for my husband's smile that greets me promptly at 6:20 each weeknight.
for a sister who I can call a crazy number of times a day and it never gets old.
for a missional church.
for parents and in-laws who make grandparenting look like the best job in the world.
for living in a state that allows me to experience all four seasons (although I'm especially thankful for autumn).
for a 3 1/2 year old boy who still asks me daily, "Mommy, can I cuddle with you?"
for our vet who genuinely wants to find an affordable and effective cure for our sweet pup's seizures.
for dance parties with my kids, and sometimes without.
for friends who keep me humble.
