Share the Joy: Fruit Cocktail

One thing I've learned about
cultivating JoY
is that when you start looking for it,
it shows up everywhere.

In the weirdest places.
In unbelievable forms and shapes.

Like this guy. . . .
found in an antique store
in Thorp, Washington.

It's a kitschy pitcher.  

Trying saying that fast 5 times.
I dare you.
I bet you can't do it without laughing.
And letting the JoY leak in.

The crazy pitcher made me laugh out loud.
If I hadn't been in a "paring down,
simplify" phase of my life,
I absolutely
would have brought him home with me.
Simply for the smiles he'd evoke.

(Instead, I bought a beautiful embroidered handkerchief
to add to my stash of beautiful nose wipes.)

How are you cultivating joy?
Share your wins,
your misty-eyed moments,
your ear-to-ear grins.

Where do you find JOY?
What thrills you?

Notice it.
Cultivate it.
Celebrate it.

Share it.

1. do a post that tells and shows what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into 
the Mr. Linky box along with your info.

3. Visit other players and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment because everyone
 enJOYS getting positive feedback.

Let's keep the epidemic of JOY going!
