Three things I really like for wrapping a present for any occasion:

1. a roll of brown parcel paper

2. hemp string or jute twine

3. plain parcel tags

I love the color of crayons and pencil crayons in a jar...
...or in a crock that no longer has a lid!

I love how Amy made little posters to spread goodness so I thought I would make one too! A few years ago, I noticed the joy in enjoy and started making that part of the word in uppercase letters. I use it in my notes and messages to others. We can have JOY in any situation!

I think it helps if we...

1. Smile at strangers.

2. Ask people questions about themselves.

3. Sit beside someone sitting alone.

Amy's book talks about writing and sending texts which we do often in our family.

Since the kids were little, we have prayed Joshua 1:9 with them.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9
I sent this text to Eliza the night before their first match at the Canada Games.
