Stop & smell the coffee  I’m not sure this qualifies as a lesson I’ve learned in my 40 years, but it’s something that I’ve grown to appreciate. The little things. Things that some people take for granted, or overlook,   

I take great joy in. 

Like, fresh hot coffee. 

or snow days. 

or Sunday drives. 

or homemade cookies fresh from the oven. 

or Christmas music. 

or snuggling up on the couch with a good book/laptop & my favorite pet beside me. 

or a date with my hubby, even if it’s just going to get coffee… 

or happy time spent with my teen. 

or sitting on my swing in the sunshine. 

or lunch with friends. 

The little things in life make me happy. 

Proverbs 14:30 “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” 

Proverbs 17:22 “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”   

**Speaking of snow days, today is a snow day!!!!  Enjoying my coffee as I type.  Received my first Studio Calico monthly scrapbooking kit yesterday, so I am planning on scrapping a lot today!!!  Tune in tomorrow after 40 till 40 and hopefully I will have some scrappiness to post!
