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


♥ hearing "Good Citizen Stories" from our National Guard son Sam.. as local Milwaukee restaurants surprise the troops helping with COVID19 testing with lunch and dinner

♥ spending time celebrating the 4th of July with family at Home Sweet Home

♥ red, white and blue desserts


♥ watching firefly dance in the trees
♥ enjoying a good book on the deck with a summer breeze
♥ playing with old fashioned sparklers with my favorite people

Our son Atticus, me and my husband.

  10. All the so-called-news shows, is not good Citizens, who want to tear our Country down, rather than improve it.

  11. And this can be demoralizing. At least to me.

  12. We have to believe that there are many, many, many Good Citizens out here!

    Who do not want to tear our Country down, to improve it.

    We have to.
