Choose Joy.....

     We are always asked to count our many blessings... Instead, I like to think Count my many Joys!!!
I often like to make lists. Lists help me stay focused and try to be productive.  I have more breaking moments when I am not focused. Staying focused on my JOYS and Seeing what brings me JOY pulls me through everyday.

Here is an example of my list of JOYS
  • ALL my Children
  • My Husband
  • My Faith
  • Laughter
  • Friendships
  • Accomplishments
  • A cool breeze and sunshine
  • Clean dishes...Well a clean house is even better
  • A cold drink
The Little things are not overlooked, Joy can be found in the simplest ways.

By going through Grief/Sorrow we suffer through the opposite of JOY. By living through the sorrow we can truly see and cherish JOY in our life. I hope that now I/my family can recognize JOY more fully, by going through sadness.

Those whom travel the road of Loss/Grief in any perspective, Learn to have a new out look on life.

A loss can be: Death of a loved one
                      Loss of a marriage/Divorce
                      Loss of a Job
                      Loss of Friendships

After these losses we learn to cherish and find JOY if we choose to. I want to embrace JOY and teach my children JOY!! I know within my heart my sweet "Angel AJ" wants us to be happy and enjoy life.

               If you have taken the time to read this....Make your own list of JOYS!!!!
