Last night I was reunited with one of my aunts who took care of me when I was an infant in Vietnam.
Until this evening, we had not seen each other for over 40 years.
It was such a joy to reconnect with her and meet her children and grandchildren. Part of the unexpected joy on this 18-month #JoyfulLivingProject journey across America is reconnecting with family and friends.
It’s too easy to become immersed in our lives that we forget the joyful relationships in our lives.
Who is a family or friend you haven’t been in touch with within a while? I invite you to reach out to them today to say hi. I’m sure this will bring them joy and you as well.
This morning, my aunt prepared a special homemade bowl of beef noodle soup for breakfast. We shared a wonderful conversation catching up on 40 years. Then she took me on a tour of her garden and showed me the chili peppers she was growing.
