Warmer temperatures melted just about all the snow that covered our yard - that was joyous to me.
Warmer temperatures reminded me that Spring is is just weeks away when the earth "wakes up" from the slumber it has been under.
The air is cleaner, the sun is warmer, and although when I wake up in the morning, it's still dark, I know that the days are getting longer.
All this is Joy to me.
I find Joy in the everyday things; coffee in the morning, conversation with Hubby as I go to work in the morning. Happy co-workers, happy dogs; Friends to visit, good health, a warm home, hot food, a blanket made for me by a friend to cuddle under while watching TV at night and
an electric blanket and clean sheets to allow me to drift off to sleep at night.
|This was the blanket made for me to cuddle up under. I love the combination of colors.|
I know that sometimes this year, Joy may be harder to find. I understand that life gets in the way and the business of hurried days may cover up joy. But for today, for this past week- I feel joy.
