Finding pieces of joy and sharing them is not always easy, especially for someone who suffers from chemical depression as I do. Though my intellect accepts that there is always joy around us, my emotions have a more difficult time of it occasionally.
Perhaps that is why I chose "Joy for the Journey" as this year's theme. I have to make myself do the hard stuff. And you know what? Life is full of hard stuff; that's part of our reason for being on this earth--to be tested.
As I read what I just wrote, I realize I'm rambling. So I'll try to get to the point. Yes, life is full of hard stuff. But it is also filled with tender mercies, slices of happiness, and miracles.
Joy for today: remembering those miracles.
