Many Kinds of Joy !

Where did the joy come from this week ?

Tender Joy : A phone call to a dear, dear Loved One whose Mom has made the journey to the other side, loving her through, and then lighting a candle on the altar to light the way…

Acknowledging and having gratitude for the joy is an important bit of our work here on this planet, I think.

In the midst of all the hardships and darkness, the joyous light is always present.

We just have to remember to look for it !

I think we often over look joy because we want it or expect it to come in a large way. True joy is the small nuances like an attitude, a breathless moment here and there. Say hi to Mom for me!
