This week was full of so many joys…the list is very long.

Recognizing them and celebrating them helps take the edge off the sorrows and hardships that accompany them in this bittersweet journey.

I am sending out light and love extra strong right now to some dear ones who really need it.

And focusing on the joys in my own life gives me the strength to do that.

Thanks for letting me share the joy with you, Beautiful Ones !

Let’s keep adding that sweetness to the world.

Kim you find the joy wherever you go; and if there are others who do not see or feel the joy you open the door for them to find it. Sending out love to those you love who need some extra...♥
