What brings me joy…

I love reflecting on the things that bring me joy in my life right now.  Of course I could fill up this blog with so many things that I think about that bring a smile to my face.  The picture represented below are just 4 of probably 40,000 things I could list.

From left to right…Clay Matthews…#52 Green Bay Packers.  I love watching Clay play.  He has such a passion for the game.  Each play he plays 110 percent.  He is amazing and I love watching him play!

Next up, I love my little Courtney.  This picture was taken after her party last week.  She was so tuckered out from playing with all her dog friends that she fell asleep by 5 pm and didn’t wake up until after 7:30 the next morning!

The third picture is what our living room looked like after she had her friends over.  Her little toys were scattered all around, it makes me smile to know that I still get to pick up her toys and watch her get exciting at her squeaky toys!

The last picture was taken at a holiday party and I not only love parties, but my little furry host.


So many things bring me joy, a cup of coffee, running, spending time with Melitas, teaching, listening, meditation, music, learning from my rabbi, making others laugh with my Courtney impersonations, cooking, entertaining friends, listening to Courtney snore as she lays next to me while I am writing my blog…

What brings you joy?  Find it now!
