Joyful Things

October 1st, 2009 · 12 Comments

Can I just say that I love Karen’s Love Thursday post this week?  Yes, I do!  Karen wrote about everyday joy and living a joyful life.  Isn’t that what we are all striving for?  Love it!  So here are some of my everyday joys from yesterday and this morning!

Shadows 10-1-09 002 (Medium)Morning Shadows that make the ordinary, extraordinary!

Chapstick – it’s essential to me.  I love that waxy feel on my lips!  Thank you to Stephanie for reminding me of chapstick today!

My first thing in the morning cup of tea.  Ahhhh. heaven.

Kissing each of my kids and breathing them in before they went off on their school buses this morning.

That smile my husband gives me as he comes down the hall in the morning, sleep still in his eyes.

The sound of the early morning birds.  I hear them hopping around in our forsythia bushes gently chirping.

The smell of snow in the early morning air.  It’s not that cold, why does it smell like snow?!

Meeting my 11th grade son’s teachers last night, being overwhelmed by all the work that he has to do this year, and being really joyful that it’s not me having to do all that work!

Shadows 10-1-09 009 (Medium)October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Christina is the lovely hostess of pink thoughts this month.

Happy Love Thursday!

    Great list . . . that part about the snow? I don’t remember what snow smells like, but I do remember the night sky taking on a certain glow or aura before a snowfall, and even in the warmer than snow southern winters, every now and then, the night will have that same glow.
