This summer has been an oasis of joy. The cool temperatures have, I'm sure, been a part of that feeling of contentment, but mostly it's because I have been aware of how happy I am. My husband and children, my home, the wonderful people in my life, my faith, the beauty of the countryside - I have never felt so completely content. A feeling of joy makes my heart overflow with grateful appreciation to God for all the love that surrounds me.
I've been through some hard times in my life. I guess that's why I recognise and appreciate the good times when they come.
