Thanks for popping in. Well, you certainly knew where to find me! And for the forseeable future, right? Oh Joy.
But despite all the Pandemic panic once again, there is a great deal for me to be grateful for, and I must remind myself of that daily. These two little fellas for a start.
They bring an innocence and energy into the home, like fresh air, and all bad, sad thoughts are exorcised as soon as they appear.
Their playful and oh-so-cute antics simply capture me, enrapture me – and everything else is forgotten, albeit for a short while. These two beautiful little charmers give us such joy.
And Mum and Dad. After the SHAC Shac I went over to spend the afternoon with them. Talked and listened and laughed. How grateful I am to live so close to them and have such a good friendship with them. My kids may live thousands of miles away, BUT my parents are here.
The gratitude list gets longer and longer when I stop and consider. It’s so easy to get sucked into the gloom, fear and rebellion out there, but what’s the point of being gloomy, fearful or judgemental? Serves no purpose.
And so. I stay close to home, I keep it in the day, and I try to do the next right thing. Don’t always get it right, in fact I often get it wrong, but I try all the same.
I’m also grateful to be a crafter. There’s so much to do! There just aren’t enough hours in the day for all the things I want to make and try!
So Yes. Joy. Deep Joy actually.
Here’s a little Joyful Step by step to celebrate, using one of our O Framers on Amazonia Designer Card.
Have a think. Think of one thing you are grateful for. Then think of 3 more things you are grateful for. That’s 4. Think of one more. That’s 5 things. You see, it’s all a question of perspective. And an attitude of gratitude will always improve your spirits.
Love and hugs,
