Joy List Monday

Joy List Monday
♥ a weekly ritual ♥

a reminder to stop and pay attention to the little beauties and graces that make life magical and to set aside time for gratitude each day

 ♥ a visit to my parents to celebrate my dad's birthday
 ♥ taking time to share stories of my childhood with my parents and my boys
 ♥ cucumbers ... lots of cucumbers to make dill pickles
 ♥ sunflowers and babysbreath from my garden
♥ the first of my gladiolus are blooming

  7. Nothing makes me smile more than sunflowers. :)
    Please post your gladiolas when you can. We grew them in Nashville when we lived there over 25 years ago.
