Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following you, too! =)

Love your header with the photos of the twins. So adorable!

I'd have to say I agree with most of your points. Love to keep learning.

Such a sweet list!!!

MamaOtwins+1 said...

Great things to learn! I miss the beach too!

Tara said...

Great list! Andrew rarely cries in the car but I will sing too if needed. It makes me smile when singing a Jesus song calms him!

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

What a wonderful list, especially #10 :)

Wendy said...

Isn't it nice that singing will get your little one to stop crying? Mine used to stop for it, too. Now I'm just waiting for the day when she asks me to stop singing because it's embarrassing her.

Christina said...

Such a positive list, even with a few things that you seem to miss. Life can be really good, can't it? :-)

Hope the day is going well and November is being kind so far. ;-)

Mighty M said...

I've never really traveled and I MISS it - LOL. Really, after sending ds-14 to Africa this past summer, I am so ready to travel.

#10 put a big smile on my face.

There's an award for you waiting on my blog!

Tracey said...

Those are some great lessons! While I try to be thankful year round, I am glad when November comes along and gives me constant reminders to be grateful for what I have been given!

Velva said...

Very nice! Well said.

At Town Square said...

Those are things to remember everyday. Great blog you have. Thanks for stopping by. Come back anytime.

Connie K said...

Wonderful Blog ! just stopping by to say hello :)

Ocean Girl said...

Nice list. I wonder what did I learn this week. My continuous lesson is nothing is within my control and that everything is in God's power.

Susie said...

Those are some good lessons:-)

Brianne said...

Great list. And I totally agree that I am not grateful for all my blessings. Need to think of them when times are rough.

True friends are hard to come by, especially later in life. We just moved across the country in March. I love it here so far but wish I could meet some great women to connect with locally.

The song thing is SO true! When my oldest B used to wake up in the middle of the night or was sick or just wouldn't stop crying I would hold him in my arms and sing "Hush little baby". If I stopped singing he would start crying again. Funny thing is it also worked like a charm on the two 1 year old boys I have nannyed for in the past. Something about the singing voice calms them down in an amazing way.

Miss Dot said...

What great lessons you've learned! It's good to stop and realize all we're grateful for. It's way too easy for us to get caught up in the craziness of the world and forget all that He has done for us.

It's so true that friends are harder to make as we get older but when you do make them it's amazing and they'll stay around forever. I have been fortunate to find a few without looking.

Thanks so much for sharing in my SITS day last week!

Tammy said...

I agree with #4. I do a "What I Learned This Week" post every Friday usually, unless I move it to Saturday, but never knew there was a Mr. Linky for it. I link it to Mrs 4444 Friday Fragment post.

Amie said...

So true - mommyhood has it's ups and downs but it is a true passion!

Karen said...

That is a great list. I have really been trying to be more grateful for what I have. I think that's the biggest thing I've learned this year.
