This weekend I got to spend some time with my little sister for the first time in 6 weeks (big deal for us, we usually see each other every week!) She started college this fall and had so much joy to share with my family and me, and I enjoyed every moment listening to her about it. Have you ever thought of taking a few minutes to list and meditate on the things that bring joy to your life? For me, it is God, my husband, friends, family, my two dogs, exercise and food. I really encourage all of you to take a few minutes to think about who or what brings your life joy, and really reflect on specific reasons why you are so glad those things are part of your life. If it is a person, maybe even take a moment to reach out to them and just give them a quick encouraging message to make their Monday a little more special.
