The Little Things . . .

Hi Friends,
Today I am linking up at "From the Aisle to Aloha."  Is that a cute blog title or what?
Anyways, she hosts a little link-up party on Fridays about the little things that got us through our week.

Aisle to Aloha

Think of it as a new spin on "Friday Favorites."  These are favorites that actually mean something.  How about them apples?

So . . . this is my first installment of my little things that help me cope in the midst of this crazy life.

1.  CBS Bible study:

On Wednesday mornings I go to a Community Bible Study. 

We are studying First Peter right now, and WOW . . . I. am. learning. a. lot. 

We have only been studying for five weeks, but topics like - how to be a servant, how to submit to leadership, how to truly love your brother, why we suffer, how to deal with suffering . . . have been a part of the discussion. 

Are you kidding me?  Talk about hitting you right between the eyes.  God is speaking.  And I am listening.
It definitely helps me get through my week.

2.  The Husband.

I don't talk a whole lot about my husband on the blog, and I don't really know why.

Maybe because my kids take up so much of my brain space that it is difficult to think about much else on a daily basis.

I know that is so backward, and I need to work harder at giving my husband more of my time and brain power.

But back to him . . . He is wonderful.

I caught a cold this week, and with my lifestyle colds just don't fit.  I am too busy to take a day off, so I have to push through. 

Last night before I fell asleep Tim was so sweet to ask me how I was feeling and to let him know if I had a fever or felt terrible.  I am not really sure what he was going to do about it, but he knew that I would feel love just from the asking. 

He is super sweet, even when I am not. What a guy.

3.  Pumpkin cookies.

I don't really have to explain a whole lot with this one.

These are the best cookies ever. period.

I got the recipe from one of Peter (my brother)'s old girlfriend's mom.  They are simply the best piece of a pumpkin baked good to ever grace these lips . . . or anyone else's for that matter.

So . . . what little things have helped you get through your week?  This little exercise was F. U. N.


  1. I hate to cook, but I love to bake! Pumpkin cookies.....I'm going to have to try those! :)

  2. Oh, you should. They are better than delicious.

  3. I think I am going to have to try them too! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sounds like an amazing week! So sweet to read about your husband! And those cookies, yum. yum. yum. :)

  5. I'm glad you are taking part in the "it's the little things" link-up party!

    That is such a sweet story about your husband. =)
    Made me smile.

    It sounds like God is really impacting you through the Bible study!

  6. Stopping in from "it's the little things" I'm a new follower ;) I know what you mean about giving time to your husband. I have 6 kids, 5 of which are still at home and they consume me. I'm always trying to find ways to remind my husband how much I love and appreciate him...he's so good to me!
