Share the Joy: Memoirs and Goldfinches

Hey Everyone it’s time for a little exercise
Let’s jump for JOY!

This week I’m feeling joy and gratitude for
The memoir class I’m taking. It’s really opening possibilities.

I’m joyful that so many of you are willing to be profiled
For’s Fascinating Women series.
Thanks, Deb!  Visit her blog too.

and check Queen of Art Kim's article on being loved
because it gives me lots of JOY
and hope, too -
hope that I can know the feeling of being loved once more.

And I’m full of JOY that the tree outside my home office
window has been full of dancing goldfinches today.
The cats and I have loved that. I just wish those little birds
would hold still so I could take their pictures.

Hummingbirds, could you talk to them please?
Tell them I don’t bite and the cats are indoor felines.

What gives you JOY?

To play along and share YOUR 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.

3. Then click the NEXT box
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 so you'll entice people to visit.

(If you just can't get it to work, email me
and give me the URL of the post you're adding
and I'll take care of it).

4. visit other players -- as many as possible -- 
and let their joy infect you.  

5. Leave them a comment about their post
because everyone enJOYs getting positive feedback.

Let's start an epidemic of joy!
