The funny thing about Joy is that you only really find it when you’re too busy having fun to go looking for it.
Today, I’m joyful because it’s Friday. It’s Friday and I have several projects to wrap up and then I get to skip out into the sunshine and enjoy the glorious “Indian Summer” weather we’re having.
I’m joyful because my office is closer to orchards than it is the mall.
I’m joyful because I have Honeycrisp apples in my house and on my desk.
I’m joyful because Autumn’s beauty is starting to emerge and boy is she spectacular!
I’m joyful because 15 years ago I declared that I wanted to live in the four seasons again, with a screen door, a dog and have the boys know our families better. And we do.
I’m joyful because tomorrow brings the Vision Board class I organized … for others but just as much for me.
I’m joyful because our Tigers won last night and, in our excitement, the person we immediately called was my 81 year old mother. Why? Because we knew she’d be up watching it, too, out of solidarity to us here in Tigers-land. She cheered, we cheered and that win was sweeter because we could share it.
I’m joyful … because I am.
What’s brought you joy of late?
