a good reminder

One of my new blog friends Shuana @ Trying to Stay Calm has such a bright cheery blog and she gives some of the best comment love. She posted this story about what a Santa told her boys a few years ago and I love the meaning of it all so wanted to share. He was wearing a JOY pin and said:
The J is for Jesus
The O is for Others
The Y is for Yourself
He told them to find true JOY in your life...
You should think of Jesus, Others and of Yourself to truly find Joy and happiness!
I want to meet this Santa because I think it's a great message.
In other news, I'm feeling so done and over with cleaning. Have cleaned the house up a bajillion times this weekend it feels, plus cleaning out the basement which really, need I say more? So, today is a fun girls day in our house. Lounging in our pj's all day. I just finished painting Miss Emma's toes. And I'm about to go cookie recipe searching and we're going to be baking some cookies. I seriously love Monday's so much!
