Joy isn't always announced by the blaring of trumpets.
Sometimes it's heralded by chalk dust
and shouts of, "Look, Daddy!"
It might rush in like waves to the sand,
making you jump for joy because you love
your family and life itself so much.
Sometimes you find delight in a mug
of latte because the barista created
a little heart on top with caramel and
the "extra-foamy" you asked for.
One day I found it at the bottom of a bowl
of mushroom soup and took it as a sign
my true love was on his way.
And if you're like me, even something
as simple as red chairs
can fill you with joy.
Just the way they're lined up so neatly,
gathered like friends, and saying,
" Come join us!"
We'd love to have you join us
for Share the Joy Thursday this week.
To play along:
1. do a post that tells and shows us what gives you joy.
2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into the
Mr. Linky box along with your name.
3. visit other players -- as many as possible -- and let their joy infect you. Leave them a comment about their post.
Let's start an epidemic of joy!
