Joy.....I am a great believer in seeking joy in every day life. Life can really get one down at times whether its financial, health, relationship issues or just the daily news. But there is always something to be joyful and thankful for even if you have to look harder on some days.
Here are some of this weeks joy filled moments:
puppy cuddles with the cutest husky pup
my dads welcoming home and time spent hanging out there
time spent gardening, filling my pots with splashes of summer color
laughter and pure delight playing with my nephew on a hot summers evening, water and balloons involved!
giggling little girls
friends popping by and staying late to catch up and chat
my sweet girl cooking dinner for the family, a joy to eat a delicious meal I didn't prepare
barefooted walk in the pine forest
the sound of the stream bubbling and gurgling, delighted children and dogs splashing about
a shady spot , good food, beloved family members
carnival time at church, family, friends, festivities, balloons, fabulous food, fun, a great big bonfire and sparklers....
I hope you seek joy in the ordinary and sometimes difficult or messy days too.
