February 12, 2018

Editor’s note: We’re excited to roll out this new blog feature, called 10 Things That Bring Me Joy! Each post will be written by a Joy’s House staff member or volunteer, with the hopes that you’ll learn more about the faces and people you see in and around Joy’s House on a daily basis. If you’d like to share your own “10 Things”, please contact us – we’d love to hear from you! -Mandy

  1. The sound of my kids voices laughing and talking with each other
  2. Seeing the Guests at Joy’s House enjoying each other
  3. Building relationships with my co-workers
  4. Seeing my husband’ face when I come home from work
  5. Hugging my daughter so hard she says she can’t breathe
  6. Snuggling with my grand-dog
  7. Hearing a caregiver tell me how much they appreciate Joy’s House
  8. Having Tina tell me I am being too snarky (she means it lovingly)
  9. Making Cayla laugh
  10. Talking with Melissa…about anything
