For years now, Matt and I have been listening to the Bobby Bones Show on the radio. We absolutely love the show, and they have created something so real, and truly special. In the last few years, one of the show's co-hosts, Amy, announced that her mom, Judy, was battling cancer. Despite her illness, Judy has chosen to find joy in all situations. Relying on her faith in God, even when she's feeling down and miserable, she chooses to look for and share that joy with others.

After sharing this, the show started their #pimpinjoy campaign, encouraging people to choose joy and perform random acts of kindness for others. The impact was huge, and inspiring. People were doing everything from shoveling snow from their neighbor's walk, to buying a whole set of tires for a stranger; a single mom in need. You can read more about all of it on the Pimpin Joy website.
I too was inspired by Judy and her incredible outlook, and have tried to apply this to our daily lives, no matter what is happening. I had this little picture frame sitting on our mantel for months with no picture in it, just waiting for the perfect fit. It finally dawned on me to make a printable with this message.
It's nothing over the top, but just simple and a great reminder in our lives. And, now I'm sharing it with you! Click the link below to download this printable; I have it available in 4x4, 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10! You can simply save the file and print it out on a 8.5" x 11" piece of paper (I recommend cardstock). Just print and trim down with scissors to fit your frame.
I hope you enjoy it in your home as much as I do in ours!!
