Ode to Joy, How Sweet It Is!

I got some wonderful news a little while ago, and I am doing better than OK
Free Animations

I had planned on doing a post on "joy" today. It was not going to be about the big things in life, but rather, those small happenings that come our way - you know, like finding one more French fry in your McDonald's bag after you thought they were all gone.  It was to be about simple, ordinary incidents that cause us to smile and make our day a little more brighter. However, I just got an e-mail from someone close to me who has been going through some difficult health problems. Today, the doctors gave her a thumbs up. This is a biggy. This is all-out-joy, wrapped up in a big sterling silver bow. I am doing my happy dance.

So never take life for granted, never give up hope, enjoy what you have and sing out loud.


I was going to change my header picture today, but I think I will keep that bluebird of happiness around for just a little bit longer..

  14. I found your blog by chance and stopped to look at your beautiful bird in your heading. Did you take this picture? I have not seen one like this here in Georgia but we have beautiful cardinals all year long. You are right about not giving up hope – we heard some bad news about my husband’s health – I’ll try to be optimistic. I am very happy for your friend.
