Things I Enjoy

I was skimming through some blogs and saw some people had lists about things that bring them peace or happiness. I also got a comment about the benefits of making lists. I happen to make them all of the time (which you may have noticed that all of my blogs have a list of something) and thought, “Why not make a list of things that bring me joy?” So cheers to my optimistic side. Just for my own reminder that not all of life is horrible.
