One of the many great things about OSLC is the staff that works here. We have a lot of fun together, we laugh with each other, and we are there to support one another during tough times. Being able to work and live out the calling I have been given with such great people is a true joy, and I am reminded daily of how much fun life can be.

Coming in to work with people who bring joy and laughter to me is a true blessing. Being with people who are happy and upbeat makes my life a little better and I enjoy what I do even more.

A lot of this goes to the point that who we surround ourselves with has an impact on how we act and how we live our lives. If we surround ourselves with negative people, those who see the glass as half empty all the time, who live in the past and see nothing good about today, etc - well, we then start to fall into their traps. We start to see less and less of the joy of life and we start to wallow in the darkness that these people live in.

But, when we surround ourselves with the joy people - the people who see the good things in life, who celebrate the blessings that they have been given each and every day - well, we start to see more and more of that in our lives as well.

We are influenced by who we surround ourselves with - so my question for you today is - Who will bring you some laughter and joy today and why not give them a call?
