Today finds Nad and I still battling our illnesses; hers we still don’t know what all is going on and mine is slooowly getting better. I go see and ENT in two weeks about getting my tonsils out. Can’t wait! I’ve been dealing with tonsil infections for two years and its to the point that the swelling in my neck won’t go down and it is painful.
Today is also senior picture day!!! Well, day one anyway. We are breaking it up into two sessions or so because she just doesn’t have the stamina to deal with hours of posing and changing clothes several times and so on. I am so excited, more so than she is I think
Featured Post from #JoyHopeLive last week
My feature this week is: Pantry Storage Jars by Pili at My Sweet Things. Pili has so many creative arts & crafts projects on her website it is impossible to pic a favorite. These are upcycled jars that we all throw away daily once we’re done eating whatever was in them. She even has a link to homemade chalk paint in her post. I didn’t know that was possible to make your own!
Now for what you’re really here for!

There are so many ways we can pursue joy in our lives, but it has to come from the heart. Being momentarily happy and possessing an internal authentic joy in the face of difficult circumstances are two very different things. I believe it is the little moments of happiness that help shape and prepare us for the difficult life circumstances we all face. My question is what do you do in your everyday that brings you happiness and fosters a deep found joy in your life?
