Finding Joy

We have been having lots and lots of rain lately here in the South! Today was the first day in over a week that we actually had sunshine ALL day!! The sky was a brilliant blue, the air was cool, and the shades of green on all the trees and grasses were gorgeous!  When we have the heavy, dreary clouds of rainy days, it is often hard to remember the things that bring joy into our lives. Rainy days have their own beauty, but when those days happen over and over again without sunshine, we tend to forget that beauty and let ourselves get dragged down into the dumps! At least, I know that I do, so, I decided to find joy today. I’ve been thinking of writing a “Finding Joy” post for several days now, and decided that today is the day to do it. I have so much to be thankful for and need to count my blessings on a daily basis!

1. My girl with her man.


2. Baby smiles with drool on the chin!


3. Sunshine and shadows after the rain.



4. Tiny peaches growing in the orchard.


5. The announcement in the mail for my college senior’s final dress parade and reception at the President’s home.


Have you counted your blessings today? What brings you joy?
