A Joyful Journey



I knew as I opened my eyes, that this was what I wanted to write about today. This lovely time of year, and my unexpected journey yesterday. I would struggle to find a reason not to be happy or grateful after this past week.

Christmas music playing in Tesco caught me unawares yesterday; I found myself tearful, tears of joy – so grateful for a normal Christmas, knowing my man was at home dozing in his chair.

Little children on their way home from school in bobbly hats, with flushed cheeks, mittens and boots- a wonderful time of year when you are that age; it warmed my heart to trespass in their little minds for a few seconds.


Being able to laugh spontaneously with the staff at the deli counter as they danced and sang to the music while serving me. All good stuff!

Was it the joy within me that allowed me to see everything so differently?  If so, I am so grateful.
