A Little Joy

What did you do this week that brought you joy?
Made you smile?
Brought you Peace?
Something you were grateful for?

Here are a few of my favorites from the last week:

Raindrops on Plumeria

1. It's been raining! YeeHaw! We are in a horrible drought and we've had rain almost everyday for several weeks now. Mostly a nice light rain. Not a lot, but enough to make my garden happy.


2. Biscuits and grits. A Southern girl can not live by Healthy Food alone! I had breakfast one morning with a dear friend at the Avalon Diner and I had a biscuit and grits. I can't tell you how good they tasted. 
Next time, I'm going to have two biscuits and gravy with grits!!!!!



3. The beautiful roses my DSD (dear step-daughter) sent me for Valentine's Day. It was a difficult week for both of us. We both miss her Dad so very much.


Tea House

4. Finding Peace  walking in one of my favorite places, the Japanese Garden in Hermann Park.

I'm joining Liv Lane for The Little Bliss List Link Party.

For those of you who might be looking for a postcard, I hope this one makes you smile!

Thank you Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday!

Wishing YOU well and a FUN filled weekend!

Your blog made me smile as it always does, being bad and having pizza for Valentine's Day and some dark chocolate bark the superhero brought me. Playing with puppy and Ms Ella, laughing at myself and my critic by journaling her! xox Corrine

You are an inspiration, Snap, because you always look for joy no matter what. You lead by example!

What beautiful roses and your step-daughter sounds like she's very sweet. It's these moments that mean the most in life.
Thanks for sharing your list and for visitining mine.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Such beautiful roses and I just love the photo of the cats. It's hard to get photos of animals. I know I've tried. May you have a blissful week.

Mimi and Tilly said...

What a lovely list. I've never tasted grits, and am fascinated to know what they're like! I love Japanese gardens. I lived in Japan for a while and found the gardens there so peaceful and beautiful. Em ♥

I do love the cats! :)

I have yet to work out quite what biscuits, grits and gravy might be, and how they could possibly be combined in an edible way. :)

The flowers are beautiful.
I'm from the North so I've had biscuits but not grits.

Lovely joys !

I am so glad you and your DSD have one another to love close by.
Have a great weekend !

My Little Home and Garden said...

An example of joy, you asked? I had lunch with my niece this week. (Step niece, technically speaking.) I'm about 14 years her senior, so she's a real grown-up!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

What a fabulous post, Snap... You did have some wonderful things this week which brought you joy.... SO glad you are getting some rain!

For me, just being out in the mountains searching for waterfalls and hiking brought me so much joy... Of course, that delicious Prime Rib for Valentine's Dinner was awesome also...


Barb said...

Wonderful gratitude photos, Snap. I remember Hermann Park and the Garden.

Pondside said...

What a sweet post - and like everyone else, I'm glad that you have your DSD to share your precious memories and to remember the day with such gorgeous flowers.
Grits? Really? I would not make a good southern girl, I just know it!

MJ said...
