I was tagged by the beautiful Grace from PrayerandPassports and to do this 50 things that make my life extraordinary challenge, or 50 things that make me smile! 50 things is A LOT but as I was writing my list I realized just how much GOOD there is in my life. It’s so easy to go through your days focusing on everything that’s WRONG, and everything that makes you unhappy. That’s when we fail to appreciate the small things in life that make our life so worth living for.

So for Blogtober day 3, I am sharing with you 50 things that make me smile! At the end I will be tagging 5 others to do this tag as well! Enjoy! & thank you again Grace for tagging me. (:
