Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

“What you do today is important, it is important because you are trading a day of your life for it.” - this is one of the reminders I have displayed to see as I start my days. It helps to remind me to see this time for what it is. To see its significance.

Taking inventory of the joy in my life helps me to feel like I am honoring that.

I hope you find joy at every turn. Here are a few of mine. Perhaps they may inspire you of your own, if you find it difficult to muster.
