Glimpses of Joy: August 2016

For the past few months, I’ve been writing down something I’m grateful for each day- a little glimpse of joy in my everyday life. This summer has been a heavy one, but even in that, perhaps more so because of it, these little moments of joy have been important to remember and record. Here are my August glimpses.
