Hello, LFJ (Last Friday in June). What a warmly terrific month you have been. Thanks. Other than you, here’s why else I’m happy.
1. Lucky bamboo.
3. Gandson Daniel’s role as the snake charmer in the Savannah Children’s Theater production of The Stories of Scheherazad.
4. Stained glass.
5. Little tables to sit on.
This weekend take time to do a little celebration for a Joyful June. As a matter of fact, right now try to think of three things about June 2014 that have been a joy to you. Go ahead, try it.
See you in July.
“What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.”
— Gertrude Jekyll
Friday and I are BFF. I love her!
Here are five reasons I’m joyful.
1. Attending Fawn Smiley’s hip Grand Opening of her Hidden Well Acupuncture on Houston Street here in historic district Savannah (just a few blocks from my place).
2. Grandtwin Madison wearing daughter Emily’s blonde wig.
3. Great meal at Watershed on Peachtree in Atlanta. That’s Indigo Girl Amy (and Watershed co-owner) behind me in the black t-shirt.)
(I’m pretending I don’t know she’s back there and that the picture is all about me.)
4. Walking by this incredible façade of an old church on Piedmont Avenue near the park in Atlanta.
5. A wonderful Father’s Day supper at La Parilla with the daughters and their fellows.

And a few more Happy Bringers:
* My father’s candied fried sweet potatoes on Wednesday up in Ball Ground (north of Atlanta) during a quick visit.
** Reminders that Happiness is a Choice
** Grandson Daniel dressing up as a Disney Newsie at theater camp.
(I made the bag.)
Great joy on your last day of spring 2014 and the first weekend of summer!
There are SO many beautiful things for us to enjoy in this life. Here are a few pics I took of beautiful things around Savannah.
And God makes beautiful things out of us. I LOVE the song below. Take a listen.
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
“If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm.”
