Manic Monday Meditation

After a crazy busy weekend including spending time with great friends, a hectic work event, and lots of family time in true Manic Monday Mediation spirit, I have a special verse to center me in all the chaos.  This week I have decided to dedicate it to my super sweet Nan.  This past Thursday was her 90th birthday.  As I thought about the milestone that is a 90th birthday, I was trying to come up with ways to express how thankful I am for all of the happiness that she has brought into my life.  I thought about giving her 90 pink roses (her favorite), or 90 powdered creme filled donuts (another favorite), but they just didn’t seem like enough.  So, instead I decided to write her letter outlining some of my favorite happy memories…playing jacks with her as a small child, surprises from our shopping trips, and most importantly Conway Twitty dance parties.  The smiles and laughs following made all the stress from my crazy week melt away.  It doesn’t get much better than this:


Another one of my cousins had the same idea and gave her the most beautiful card with a special prayer referencing various verses including:

Romans 15:13

This one stood out to me the most because Joy is what she has brought into my life and many others.   It is the reason we all came together to celebrate this Sunday; her daughters, sons, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  What a great day?!
