It's August 1 and I'm going off the grid. I'm taking some time to be with my family and "get my joy on." I love this quote -- it feels right to me. We could all use some spiritual maintenance.

Family has always been the most important part of my life. It’s what brings me joy. It’s what gives me strength. It’s what gives me purpose. And, yes, it’s what gives me an identity.
