Share the Joy Thursday: Find It Everywhere



Just like people,
Joy comes in many shapes and sizes,
colors and forms.

              The perfect shape of a rose.



Sniffing my way around a rose garden,
copying down the names of varieties
that both looked beautiful and smelled like sweet perfume.


(This one's called Scentimental).


Finding a peacock with his magnificent tail in full array.
                                
     .

Little boys in play tents.





Joy is available any time, any place. . .
because JOY comes from within.

What says JOY to you this week?
To play along and share the joy:






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.
Then click the Enter box 
or the NEXT box (if we're doing image-linkies).
If the "next" box doesn't pop up, click the link
to go to the page to select your image --
choose one from your post).

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!

Meri,
Your roses are divine. I can smell them by simply looking at the page. They are redolently sweet. I love carousel horses. They remind me of happy memories of childhood. And of course your grandson's picture brings you joy! I love the summer colors in the first photo. All of it is simply fabulous! Volumes of Joy!
xoxo,
Noelle

I came by from Rebecca's site and your challenge really set the ball rolling for me for the summer. It really made me think hard about a "problem" I have in the summers.
