What you need...

... is sunshine. And coffee.

... is friends and strangers around you who are kind enough to try to help you save a barn.

... is a husband who makes you laugh.

... is lots of comfy yoga pants.

... is at least one space in your home that makes you smile.

... is to find out when your kids are out of school for the summer. (oh wait, that's me. I really should figure out their last day of school so I don't keep sending them out to a bus that isn't coming.)

... is a basset hound. (no?)

... is a housekeeper. (I see you nodding.)

... is a glass of sweet iced tea, a stack of magazines, and an afternoon with nothing else to do.

... is a bundle of fresh flowers, even if you pick them from your yard or buy the $5 bunch at the market.

... is a tan from a bottle and some bright toenails.

... is lots and lots of marshmallows in your cereal.



Happy Happy Monday to you! I hope your week is starting great!
And I pray you get exactly what you need this week.

Skip the cereal. Just eat the marshmellows! They are my favorite! And a big "Amen" to the coffee and sunshine!

Love the list. :) Diet coke, some blog reading, and craft planning are on the list here today. The sweet tea, colorful cereal, and tan in a bottle sound great too! Have a wonderful day Beki.

Thank you for just what I needed - a smile. I realize it's Wednesday and I'm just reading your Monday post. I guess I need some extra time.
