Finding Joy


Note: Marcia Peck, please send me an email at susanraihala at roadrunner dot com. 

Today, I concentrated on finding joy...even if it wasn't an everyday sort of day. George and I traveled to Madison today, driving through some nasty rain and heavy traffic in the process.

But it's been a day full of blessings. Like seeing, inexplicably, a recliner set up on the side of I-74. Like arriving safely at our destination. Like finding our hotel freshly renovated and updated. Like eating a delicious meal filled with the laughter of friends.

Find your joy. Whether it's an everyday sort of day or out of the ordinary, find the joy.



What were your everyday blessings today?

Supplies
stamps: Altenew Botanical Garden, My Favorite Things Cheerful Blessings
ink: Impress Fresh Ink grass, Memento Luxe espresso truffle

  2. Another day with my feet on the ground, a beat in my heart, & a breath in my lungs.

  5. Waking to a cool, refreshing morning after so many days of heat and humidity, hearing the whoosh, whoosh, whoosh of morning traffic and knowing that I'm not in it anymore, and seeing my name at the top of your post! Your card is lovely, too. I think a variation of it would be perfect for my stamping group at the end of the month. Interesting for the veterans and simple enough for the beginners.

  6. My blessing today (Fri 9/9) was meeting Susan Raihala in Madison, WI! I am the crazy person who "fangirled" you at Starbucks this morning. So nice to meet you in person. Best wishes to George for his Ironman effort. Hope you enjoy your stay in my city. - Amy Doyle
