It’s so easy to forget to find joy in the little things, but it’s all around us! There is so much in life to be thankful for and so many little things that just bring a big smile to my face.
Here are a couple things that have brought happiness to my heart lately!
My son turned 8!!! Where has the time gone? Let me tell you a bit about Lucas. We call him Lukey Duke. He is very sensitive and shows love at the BEST times. He has this amazing sense of knowing exactly when I need a hug. I love that he still thinks it’s cool to give me a big wet kiss and a hug at the front doors of the school when I drop him off everyday. There is nothing better than that.
I am not good at keeping plants alive. They must have the tenacity and drive to stay alive if they come home to me. I have managed to keep this plant alive for 10 years. It was a gift from an amazingly thoughtful woman, Mrs. Cartwright. She spends a huge amount of her time handwriting thoughtful notes for many people for each milestone they cross. I find a stack of her notes for each member of my family each time I visit home.
I hope you take some time today to find joy in the little things!
From my heart to yours,
