Share the Joy Thursday–A week’s worth of joy…

I had a week full of joyful moments when I ventured back to my Canadian homeland…

Visits with friends who just get me…

There was even a moment or two of solitude that let my artist soul get nourished a bit.

brought me back to hearts that missed me while I was gone

Those moments of joy are always there for the taking, Lovely Ones.

We all have the choice to reach out and grasp them whenever we can.

Happy Thursday and BIG Love !

What a great trip, My Queen. Filled with love and all good things. I really like the child version of your beautiful birds...and your rock trail. But of course the best thing is having people in your life who love you and who you can be yourself with, who support you and who you support. Thank you for sharing your joy, xoO

Oh, Kimmy-poo!!!! Love, love, love these shots. Especially the one where my teeth look white instead of yellow, the puzzle (still not finished!), us in the rain. Strangeness abounds lately, must talk in person! So glad you are finding joy under the rocks along with the centipedes and mouse droppings. love ya to bits!
