A flower blossoms for its own joy.
Make a list of your joys. Here are the guidelines.
- Be specific. The color of the horizon just before sunrise.
- Be ordinary. The squeaky-clean feel of my teeth on my tongue after I brush, floss, and rinse.
- Be small. The smell of a just cracked banana peel.
- Listen. The sound of first footsteps on the stairs.
- Be aware. The moon hung low in the hazy night sky.
If it is fun for you, make this a photo essay. Otherwise, chose another genre that is fun for you.

Oh JOY! Thank you, Ruth. We need more JOY. I’ve been thinking about how to invite students and teachers to the pleasures of joy-filled learning! https://wordancerblog.com/2022/03/19/invitation-to-joy/.
OH.MY.GOSH. what perfect timing … Thank you for the task of noticing my joy, owning it, being grateful. Was just listening to Be. David Steindl-Rast this afternoon as I prepped papers for art … Gratitude and joy.
Have a blessed night, all.
It’s a fantastic invitation. I’m finding joy in a used bookstore.
Friday evening freedom and joy. https://justforamonth.blogspot.com/2022/04/gratitude.html
It’s been a busy few weeks, but I finally got this one done just in time for the next one. I made a list of joys from A to Z.
Sharing early morning joys!
