Good health is a lot about nutrition. It also has its exercise and spiritual components. But in addition, sometimes you just need some fun. These have been fun days at the Graham household.
Both of our kids were home for a weekend in July and they were back last weekend. This makes me happy!
My sister got to spend five days with me. We talked, we shopped, we cooked, we floated on the river. Sister time makes me happy.
My niece is staying with me for 3 weeks. She is doing an internship here, and she is practicing her driving skills. I love having this enthusiastic teenager cooking and exercising and watching movies with me. Watching her success with parallel parking makes me happy.
A good friend who has had a long struggle with Multiple Sclerosis and celiac disease saw pictures I took of tubing, and sent me a message wishing she could still do things like that. I knew two places where we could float without the dangers of white water. I encouraged her to come for a weekend, and she did. We floated and talked and floated and ate gluten free food and floated some more. We called it “water therapy” and it made us both happy.
My Honorable Husband and I are making friends at our new church that will be lifetime friends. It makes us happy to walk into Bible Study and be greeted with smiles.
I don’t ever want to get so caught up in work, or the news, or the responsibilities of life that I neglect being with people and doing things that give joy! I don’t want to have so many rules about food and exercise that I miss out on happy days!
