This Week...Joy Everywhere


It may have been the up and down may have been because they were celebrating Columbus Day. I have no idea but on our morning walks, I could see joy in many faces. 



Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. Helen Keller

In particular, there’s the young lady we’ve seen for months jogging along the path. She wears a backpack for added weight. 


When she passes everyone, there is a sweet smile on her face accompanied by a friendly wave.

Larry and I’ve noticed that all that jogging has paid off...she’s lost weight and looks trim and healthy.


Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. Thich Nhat Hanh




The lady at the kolache place we go to on weekends could best be described as a bundle of joy. Maybe that’s why her kolaches and cinnamon rolls are so good. 


For happiness one needs security, but joy can spring like a flower even from the cliffs of despair. Anne Morrow Lindbergh




And finally at the dentist’s office this week, every person there seemed so happy and full of joy. Maybe they realize that many people going to the dentist are nervous so they put on the charm to make everyone feel at ease. Doesn’t matter, they made me forget why I was there. 



Have a weekend full of joy!!!

Love that middle quote! 

I bet you see joy because you are joyful. They go hand in hand!

This will certainly bring a lot of smiles this morning, and joy. Joy and happiness are contagious...that's why I like hanging around with positive and upbeat people. D

Kathy happy people brighten up everything, but I don't know about "dentist" and "happy" being associated with one another

Hello Kathy - I do think that joy of all kinds is highly contagious(in the best sort of ways) so you and Larry must be out and about "spreading it". 

On a seperate and totally unrelated point, I learned about kolaches today.  They might not bring me joy at this particular time but it's good to see a word that directs me to searching for a definition.

Joy is popping up a lot in the valley of the sun!  Everyone seems to be happier with the cooler weather and spending more time outside.  We had the most joyful server at lunch yesterday - he was a joy and then some!! Super joy!

I like this one,

It sure helps make up your mind when the rest  of the world is smiling back at you.  Thank you for the positive post.

I've been carrying extra weight in my backpack lately, Kathy.  Unfortunately, that backpack is my stomach.  But, I'm working on it!

Morning Kathy.

It is the beginning of the season.  I already know what I'm getting the wife for Christmas.  Will order it sometime next week.  Life is good

And we need to enjoy each day that is given to us. Not to be a "downer", but my BFF's son-in-law on Friday waved goodbye to his family in the morning, wife, a teenager and a college kid, and went hiking with his best pals up into Big Sur. Mid way through the day out of reach of cell phone service, he collapsed. His friends could not revive him. Some of them hiked out to find help. At the end of the day, several people's lives had changed forever. So back to the beginning, enjoy each day and tell those closest to you that you love them.
