I Heart Faces: My Favorite Things

No contest at I Faces this week, but a grand opportunity to open up a little bit about some things I ♥!  You can too!!  ;-)

I wanted to do this post this morning, and then I started thinking about my favorite things.  I would be at the computer for hours, possibly days if I decided to share all of my favorite things.  LIFE! is my favorite thing! There is so much in it that is exciting and wonderful and I am so blessed to have the life I have!  I can't take a picture of life, but in the following "short" list of my favorite things you'll get an idea, a very small idea, of some of the things that make my life wonderful and my heart sing!

My Favorite Things
I love knowing I am never alone,
and that I don't ever have to worry because God has my back!

My wonderful Children, as if you didn't know!
I feel so lucky and honored to be a part of
and an influence on their lives
and what they may be like in the future.  :-D

Children in general. 
They see things as they are and don't judge!
I think every child deserves the chance to grow up to the best of their potential.
I hope that when my own little ones are bigger and have friends over to the house
that I am everyones "mom."  :-)

Church retreats/Christian concerts/
Being around people who understand how much I love God and why,
and who feel the same way!

Such a beautiful season.  I love the others as well it's true,
but Autumn is here and I welcome it with open arms, a big rake,
and a bounce in my knees to jump in all those awesome leaf piles!

I haven't been camping in a couple of years, but I LOVE it,
I cannot wait until the next time I get to camp again!

Such a free feeling to feel the wind brush past your face.
And when you look up you feel like you can touch the sky!

Bowling...  and Feet! 
But really, I love feet, no idea why, I just do!

Asian Decor
There just seems to be something magical/mystical about the style.

Singing/Dancing/Performing :-)
Oh, I guess just positive attention in any form.  ;-)

This goes back to that attention thing.  ;-)

The Beach...  The Ocean...
The sounds, the smell, the life.  Little creatures to be caught,
treasures in the forms of sea shells and sand dollars.

AND one musn't forget chasing seagulls.

Like the bow on a present,
a beautiful sunset is the perfect finishing touch

for a day full of all of my favorite things!

Swinging is absolutely one of my most favorite things too :)

I love your list and I enjoy all of those things too.

LIFE is just beautiful, there's no way to really capture it, there's so much to be enjoyed and loved and shared, and SO many favorites....but I loved this entry :)

It really helped my day, not that it was bad, but put an extra smile on my face!!

You're a beautiful person Amy and have so much to share with others!!

Thanks for visiting my blog today! Congrats on your beautiful new baby! That is wonderful that he is doing well. It's so nice to meet a fellow Kansan, too! I'm not sure what part you live in, but I've lived in Manhattan, Goodland and now Hutchinson. Let me know if I can help with any KS resources.

I got brave and posted pics of my "fave faces" today. (before I read this tho!)
I haven't done that on this site...but that will change.

I love your analogy of the a bow on a present. That is perfect!

All your favorite things are so nice, I love seeing how you love life.
