That Made My Day

 
I was recently invited to join a blog game by Signature Gardens.
 
The rules of the game are:
1. Inform who invited you
2. List 10 things you like to do
3. Invite another 10 blogger to do the same.
 
I hope you'll bear with me as I share a few of the things that make my day.
 
Enjoying the wonder of God's creation
I marvel at the beauty and intricacies of God's creation.
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands."
Psalm 19:1
 
Family
My husband and three children bring me great joy and I love being with them.
 
Photography
Capturing beautiful images is deeply satisfying.
Since my kids have outgrown their willingness to pose,
my focus has shifted to nature and landscapes.
 
Writing
One of the things my father passed on to me was his
love of the written word and writing.
Blogging has become a great outlet for this dream.
 
Eating Chocolate
Since I live in Hershey, it's only fitting to include chocolate, preferably dark!
At about 20 calories each, a dark chocolate Hershey's Kiss is a
most satisfying yet modest splurge.
 
Visiting Gardens
Gardens are a great source of inspiration, ideas and photo opportunities.

Anything Slovak
Our family lived in Slovakia for over 12 years and it became our adopted home. 
We no longer live there, but
our hearts will forever be knit to that beautiful land and people.

Travel
During our time in Slovakia, we had the opportunity to visit many wonderful places and
the travel bug was born - now if only the budget would cooperate!
 
TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language)
I love volunteering to help others learn English at my church. 
I'm happy to be able to pay forward the efforts of
all those who helped me as I struggled to learn the Slovak language. 
ESL students are the most motivated and enjoyable students ever!
 
Fellowship with God's people
Joining others on Sunday to
worship God is the
highlight of my week.
 
 
 
I've invited the following blogs to join the game.  Be sure to check them out!

Happy Gardening!

Chris, thanks for playing the game! You made MY day :-) I enjoyed your post, and you're right -- we do have a lot in common -- a love of the Creator and His creation in flowers and people :-) And, of course, dark chocolate! Blog on!
