Her enthusiasm for life is contagious. (And her love for Jesus and God!)
This is what she wrote today on Facebook:
"!! Happy July 1st!
"Make it the best month yet? Count gifts, find joy -- right. where. you. are! Scavenger hunt for God's glory!
"(All research concludes that writing down just 3 things you are grateful for, you increase your happiness by *25%*! Who doesn't want *that*!? And giving thanks in all things is a God-command for our *joy*. Let's DO this thing!)
"Hang on the fridge for the whole family to take the #JOYDARE too! Print July's Joy Dare here: http://bit.ly/1dNbtNj "
Here it is. I printed it. Now taped in my #1000GIFTS Journal:
So. Three gifts loved. I love so much. But let's focus on today.
My Garden. I love my garden. I love gardening. Susan called her "Gardenia," my mistress. This photo is from June 29, 2014.
Here is what Gardenia will look something like in September:
Gardenia is bordered on three sides with Zinnias; I love these! They attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Inside the garden: five tomato plants, three basil plants, two eggplant plants, beets, lettuce (two kinds), arugula, oregano, tarragon, cilantro, parsley, butterfly bush, cucumbers, jalapeno plants. Can you sense I might be excited???!!!
Of course, I just LOVE my dog, Freddy. A Mini Labradoodle. He doesn't know he is getting a bath and haircut tomorrow.
And I LOVE cooking! You can read about the beginnings here. Last night I made this amazing Grilled Chicken with a Mint Jalapeno Sauce. OH MY GOSH!
Here is the recipe:
Thankful I Am for these three gifts loved.
