So many things make me happy and bring me joy. I like good food, writing, visiting with family and friends, travel, books, architectural design, cooking and trying new recipes, planting flowers, and uncontrollable laughter. I often cry at movies, a source of loving teasing and squeals of laughter from my nieces and nephew. I love attending plays and find myself secretly obsessed with noticing every detail of the set designs and costumes. Personal growth and learning new things keeps me challenged and is a constant presence in my life. Regardless of the challenges life throws our way, we have to keep moving forward and get back up again. I took ballet for several years as a child and have recently rediscovered this past joy. I’m a former writer for a healthcare publisher and find blogging is a great way to explore my passion.
My strength and joy come from the grace of the Cross. I hope this blog encourages you to share joy, grace, hope, and encouragement with others and to grow in the love of Christ.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. – Psalm 90:4
Live Joyfully Every Day!
