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

I think Joy List Monday is going to stick around for a little while longer. I've been needing Joy Lists lately and I haven't been very good about writing down daily joys. The days just go by so fast. I get so focused. Focused on things that are probably less important than I make them out to be. Slowing down for joy gets pushed to the side. So, for now, I'm going to give myself this weekly reminder (and a good start for my week). Are you with me?

    1. Thanks so much, Sharon. The basil has been really good this summer. We've been making and freezing lots of pesto. Hope you have many more summer joys, too.
