Brought to you by the letter "M"

Because I'm woefully low on blogging ideas (and even lower on energy to put to pen the ideas I actually do have), I'm borrowing a post from Dania over at Adoption to Remember. Here are the rules: If you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain will continue.
So here are my 10 favorite "M"s, in no particular order:
1. Morgan - Alyssa's Bitty Baby, who Reagan and I probably enjoy more than Alyssa does. Have to say that I hate the American Girl doll store though: I can't think of a better way to breed discontentment and materialism in a little girl.
2. Music - especially Scripture set to music. Especially when my kids are singing it.
3. Make-up - I'm not at all adventurous in this department, but it is rather miraculous when used properly. I'd be lost without my concealer and Revlon Sandstone lipstick.
4. Missionaries - my favorites undoubtedly being the Dick family serving in Croatia and the Biedebachs in Malawi. They are dear friends who serve the Lord with joy and insist that it is no sacrifice.
5. Mexican food - Whenever I go abroad, this is the taste I crave the most. One of my most memorable meals were enchiladas prepared by one of my professor's wives about 3 months into my semester in Israel. Why isn't this cuisine enjoyed worldwide?
6. Muscle memory - Without this phenomenon there's no way I could still play Chopin. Or ride a bike for that matter. Or ski.
7. Mercy - God's withholding of the punishment my sin deserves.
8. Manly men - Guys who aren't afraid to be the leaders God has called them to be. Like Danny.
9. M&Ms - Perfect little bites of chocolate, capable of satisfying my sweet tooth. Also capable of motivating two-year-olds to use the toilet.
10. Mornings that start later than 7 am - Granted at this point in my life such mornings are few and far between, but I treasure those few extra moments of sleep made possible by the occasional sleepover at grandmas.

Anyone else want to play?
