Oh Happy Day

So many things to be thankful for yet 3 stand out today…

First, at 5:35 a.m. CST my new niece Ella Ingrid Kjellstrom was born. She weighed in at 8lbs 2.5 oz. We are elated. Congrats Kent and Jenn! The only sad part is not knowing when we will get to meet this little bundle (hope she’ll still be a little bundle when we do).

Secondly, I went on a date with my husband this evening. We saw a movie that to my recollection (I know that sounds funny as how could I not recollect when it was just hours ago but I think it is more out of shock) there was not 1 cuss word, no sex scenes or sexual innuendos…not one trashy thing in the whole movie and it was so well done! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I purposely did not tell you the name of the movie as I made a vow not to recommend movies esp. in mass but I will tell you it is a independent film (romantic drama) that won the People’s Choice award at the Toronto Film Festival in 2006 (I think that is the correct year) so you can Google it if you really want to know.

And third…I am thankful that Chris Tomlin’s new album, Hello Love will be playing in my car, in my house, at the gym on my ipod as it was released today! I am so excited! Woo-hoo!

It has been a happy day; in fact as the 4th comes to a close here in the southern hemisphere I am feeling the weariness set in from all the excitement.

Hope you had a happy day as well!
