Simple Joys

 "This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." 
                                                                                          Psalm 118:24

Following is a pictoral story of the simple joys of my day today.....

The smell of a pot of homemade sauce cooking on the stove all day....

Freshly baked pumpkin cookies ready to decorate.....

A visit from my daughter Jena and granddaughter Chloe
Chloe trashing my living room with her toys!.............

My son Michael coming home from school.....

A visit from my granddaughter Cassidy and her Mom, my daughter

My husband Frank coming home from work.....
My family thought I was crazy waiting at the door to take their picture when they arrived. But as I thought about the simple joys of my days, these are the things that matter the most and bring the most joy.
What fills your day with joy?
