Joy List Monday

Joy List Monday
♥ a weekly reminder ♥
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

♥ little seedlings continue to grow 
 ♥ a warm sunny weekend 
♥ completing items off my To Do List
♥ spending time with friends
♥ learning how to play a new game  Pickle Ball

I am a fan of Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. They just released a new single Family! It is such a fun song and true of our family.

♥ Sam will be arriving home Thursday. Praying for air travel to be safe. May the journey for all to go well as Sam's classmates travel back to family and friends and start their careers in the National Guard or other branch of military. ♥

Thank you to all of you for the support and prayers during this time for our family and Sam.
