And away we go….

I think we have the ability to move thru our day and never really pause long enough to enjoy or appreciate the simple joys.  By simple joys I mean things that bring a smile to our face or something that makes us happy.  We get bogged down in work, running kids, making dinner, exercise, our schedule, tasks, and we forget the pause.  These simple joys don’t have to be major things like a vacation, new car, date night, etc.  Not that those things are great, but I challenge you to be more intentional, I want you move thru the day, pause long enough to find at least three simple things that bring joy.For me today, it was my five year old searching for my had before we crossed the parking lot, my 44 oz. drink that I ran to grab on my lunch hour, the sounds that I heard as I sat in my garden at the end of the day, the birds, the kids in the distance laughing, the waterfall, and the breeze.Pause….and find the simple joys.Holly

  1. My simple joys today:
    1. Picking up my son from Daycare and seeing a big grin on his face
    2. Reading the book that my son brought to me and seeing the excitement on his face
    3. Eating dinner as a family, talking about our crazy hectic day and realizing we made it through!

    Great reminder!
