~ A good run with Dixie. I enjoy the easy rhythm between the two of us. I love how she prances at my side and how content she is while we are running together.
~ Reading late night with hubby. It’s peaceful to lay in bed side-by-side while silently reading. It’s a great way to end a long day and relax before bed.
~ Sunday afternoon naps with hubby and my puppies. I’m not sure how, but somehow the four of us manage to fit onto our couch and crash for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon. It’s generally the best sleep of my entire week.
~ Coffee with a girlfriend.
~ Sunday night Life Group. This is one of my favorite times during my week – digging deeper into God’s word and searching for His will in my life. It’s a time of fellowship and rejuvenation for my soul.
~ The beach – I don’t care what I’m doing. Any activity on the beach is rejuvenating – Vitamin D is like a happy pill for me!
~ Blaring the radio and singing at the top of my lungs during a road trip. PURE THERAPY!
~ Date night at the movies.
~ Spending time with my family. It’s good to feel like you belong – and the place that I feel most secure is with my family.
The list could go on and on. When I think about it – I have been given so many blessings. God has enriched my life with people and activities that bring me so much joy and happiness. If I’m honest, most days I focus on the trials and stresses that cause me pain. Instead, I should focus on how great my life is and be thankful for each day. I think I’m going to take Dixie for a run tonight after work – focus my thoughts on being content and grateful. That would be a nice change of pace for me!
