Sunday early morning I was thinking about the day ahead of me and about what would bring me joy this day. I made a fire, got my cup of coffee and talked with friends while enjoying my fire. Sitting by my fireplace always brings me joy.
As I sat by the fire I got thinking about how we all deserve joy even those of us grieving. So often when we have experienced a terrible loss such as the death of someone special to us or a divorce, we focus on all that isn’t going well, we focus on our problems.
Here I encourage you to spend a little time thinking about what things or activities might bring you joy. As we focus on the word joy and on the things that bring us joy we begin to experience a little more joy.
