I am starting something new here on '...the hell with it.' After yesterday, being so apathetic, I was reflecting on how I could be more joyful. What came to mind was to post a picture, not every day but regularly, of something that makes me smile. These will be pictures I take myself, not ones found on the internet.
The first picture shows two things I start my morning with: my coffee and my breviary. I can't even open my eyes without having a cup of coffee in my hand. I love my phatmass mug, too, it holds plenty of coffee and is a thicker mug. My breviary (4 volume thank you very much) was a present from a priest friend and the cover is something a seminarian friend picked up for me in Rome. The cover is so useful because it keeps all my loose prayer cards. Plus it fits the biggest book easily - the Lent/Easter volume.
That's what makes me smile this morning.
