Monday Morning Joys

I am finding joy today:

 in new beginnings, even if it is just an ordinary Monday morning beginning, first work day of the week beginning...

For the Seniors' Devotional Bible that Hubby and I are reading together.  It was a gift I gave my Mama, but she preferred her old Bible that was well worn, full of newspaper clippings, pictures and church bulletins, and never used this one.... 


For decorating and quilting magazines that keep me inspired....



For this Mother's Day gift that I will work on at my leisure and then present back to my daughter as a gift to her, and the joy in realizing the cup on the front is the same pattern as the bowl that belonged to my Mama...


For the bowl and cookie jar that matches the cup in the above book, and for the Blue Willow cup I found in a thrift store to add to my collection that was started from the one platter that belonged to Mama.


For happy little boys... picking flowers in the "meadow"..


Running around the bend to see what's on the other side of those trees grandma!....


And laughing out loud with joy while sitting in the dappled sunlight on Mother's Day.


What are you finding joy in this Monday morning?
