Moments That Made Me Smile Today
Watching my 9 year old play baseball. The joy on that kids face when he plays is just priceless.

Here he is playing catcher and trying really hard to get the ball back to the pitcher so he can make the play at the plate. It was a great try but the runner was safe.


Digging one out of the dirt.
Here he is waiting for his pitch.

"No", he thinks to himself, "This isn't my pitch".
"Yeah"!, that's the one I wanted.
Do you see the ball coming right at you? You'd better duck!

After the game (which they won, yeah!) I went home to pick up my girls for the team pizza party. Paige was in her purple princess dress. When I asked why she wasn't dressed to go out for pizza she replied "I am mom, I'm in my party dress".

I guess she got a little confused when her sister told her they were going to a pizza party. She assumed formal attire was required. Let me tell you she was the hit of the pizza joint.

While driving to the pizza party Paige looks out the window and sees the sun going down.

She sweetly says "Goodbye Sun, have a good sleep, I love you, see you in the morning"

How often do you give the sun the love and admiration it truly deserves?

Yeah, I thought so.

Watching the expression on my 11 year old daughter's face when she finds out she is going ALONE with her Mom to Idol Gives Back.

For some reason she thought we were all going and was thrilled to find out it was just a date for Mom and herself.

Watching her pick out nail polish for a manicure and a special outfit to look her best.

The smile on her face when she went to bed.

The smile that says "I'm the luckiest girl in the whole world".

Priceless.

We were just talking last night about praising God for things that weren't material...possibly nature...We could have used Paige's sun admiration as a lesson. One praised God for his brother's cake decorating skills, and another for a good birthday cake. Ugh. They'll get it someday, won't they?

I just signed one of my younger boys up for baseball. He's never played...and he's ten. Hopefully he can stand up to the pressure! He asked me to get him some baseball lessons before practice starts. (Yes dear, I'll check the yellow pages for them.)
