Share the Joy (A Little Late in Posting)

I guess the return of my internet connection
should be at the top of my list today.
It went out yesterday afternoon
for no apparent reason 
and didn't come back online
until I'd given up and gone back to bed
to pamper myself as this cold rages on.

So -- though it's late in posting,
it's time to share the joy.

My simple joys this week?

The sun came out this morning after a rainy night,
something that always boosts my mood and energy levels.

(Don't I look saintly?)

My best friend's new grandson (a micro preemie
born weighing 1.6 pounds) is now 10 days old
and doing well by NICU standards. He's been moved
to his own room across from the NICU where his parents can spend
the night with him, which is good because his Mommy
has a broken ankle.  Little Geoffy's Daddy is
posting wonderful daily updates about his progress, 
complete with video and photos.

I'm seeing the bright green swords of
daffodils pushing out of the ground in my garden
and I know I'll soon see clumps of these:

What sparked the fire of joy in you this week?

Notice joy.
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!

How lovely to have daffodils poking up already… today snow flakes are falling like cherry blossom petals here.

I bet if we did not still have 3 to 4" of snow still on the grown I would see some daffodils too. Glad your putter is up and going.
