From this Week’s Joy List :
This is me looking joyful and loved.
That is how my friends make me feel.
Yesterday, I reached out to a few and was vulnerable, and let them know I was in need.
In need of some loving, some assurance, some support.
And I received that from my friends in such an abundance that I went to sleep last night feeling very loved and very grateful..
And that is the greatest joy.
“The days I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, I have really good days.” Ray Wylie Hubbard
It made a difference in how I felt waking up this morning too.
Today I feel lighter, more hopeful and maybe, just maybe,
I won’t be quite so hard on myself today.
And that should leave a lot more space for joy to come !
And while I have been complaining that my Muse has abandoned me for warmer climes,
I guess she took time out from her vacation to make an emergency visit back to me.
This is the journal page I sat down and let pour out of me in the gloom of yesterday’s rainy/snowy/grey afternoon.
Stencils, spray inks, Twinkling H2Os, Faber Castell pens, and one important collage piece from an old dictionary and this page was born.
I am feeling my “small particle of fire”.
And that brings this Artist Girl joy !!!
I hope you are opened up to love and joy today, Beautiful Ones.
It sure is good for what ails you !
Happy Thursday !
