Allison posted this challenge, and then Hannah joined, and now I present my list.
The challenge: I challenge you to make your own list or leave a love of yours in the comments. The only catch? You can’t include a single person you know on your list. No “I love the way my husband laughs” or “I love hearing my little girl call for me.” It’ll be tough, I know. But this particular little exercise is about stripping away everyone who defines you and figuring out what you (not his partner; not their mother/daughter/sister/friend) love.
I love feeling like I have accomplished something.
I love looking through library books and wondering what they have in store for me- will they be exciting and interesting or will they be boring?
I love waking up before my alarm after a great nights sleep
I love being able to lay in bed at night, watch a movie and drift off to sleep.
I love taking walks outside when the weather turns warm
I love hearing a song on the radio that I used to love and haven’t heard in ages
I love it when I get a great blog post idea AND have time to type it up in a way I like

I love standing in the chapel and hearing voices lifted to God in such a beautiful place

I love Colorado mountains
I love the rush of an OR suite
