Today I am JOYFUL


I have a stack of work to do and a very long "to do list" but I am full of joy today. And, of course, I must express my joy in a creative way. So I ran to my personal scrapbook place and put together a quick page full of random goodies that make me feel happy. In moments like this, the most important thing is to journal the feeling. Journaling helps me savor the moment and makes me so much more appreciative of all my many blessings.

The journaling reads: "My joyful thoughts today: I am blessed and I have experienced so much joy in my life. There have been more happy and joyful moments that sad. Marrying the man of my dreams is high on the list. Having God bless us with two beautiful and healthy boys is everything. They are my joy. OMG...I love my family -- they are everything to me."

So, think about it -- what fills you with joy? Now hold that thought, that feeling and go get creative. Anything goes -- no boundaries.

Well Hello!!! First, I want to say Thank you so much for the much needed HUGS!! Reading your Blog was so good! I enjoyed everything about it! When the song "Because you Love Me" by Celine Dione came on it made me cry. I was crying because I know what a "JOY" it was to have my nephew in my Life!!! I'm so thankful! Celine Dione was singing to my heart! My empty spot! It was totally a song that helped me reflect on the importance people play in your life! Thank you so much! I will bookmark you my new found friend! SMILE!!! Many Blessings.

Thank you for visiting my blog! You are really rocking that felt!

I experienced some joy today, just an hour ago. My son was playing outside, and I was looking at the leaves that are turning gold now, I felt the warm sun in my face. That's small, but it made me happy :)
