The monarchs in the sunflowers today are just amazing, so many of them yet I can’t seem to get any of them to stay long enough for a picture! I will try again later this after noon but for now I’m enjoying my second cup of coffee this morning before I start my long list of chores. I just got home from visiting a friend in the hospital and I’m encouraged by her ability to laugh, after a stroke there’s not much to laugh about but she remains able to laugh. I enjoyed our visit and her laughter brightened my day for sure! It’s crazy how we all get so wrapped up in our careers, chores and to-do lists that we forget to make the day count. How many people can you make smile today? Is there something you can do to bring joy to someone else? I hope my visit to the hospital brought her even a few minutes of joy. We never know when our time will come, what day will be our last. But if we live every day to spread love, joy, peace and happiness can you imagine how the world would change?
