Share the JOY

Share the JOY

It's that time of year again! 

'Tis the season for peppermint mochas, ugly sweaters, holiday parties, Christmas presents and pants that don't fit quite like they used to. 

As much as I love all of those things (minus the pants not fitting), it's the people I get to enjoy them with that I love the most. 

There are those people in all of our lives that just seem to make life more joyful.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of this season I like to take time to reflect 
over the past year and ask myself if I am I who I want to be? 
Did I spend my time this year wisely? 
Did I love people well?
Have I been one of those people who adds joy to others lives?

I firmly believe in the quote by John Greenleaf Whittier that says, 
"Somehow, not only for Christmas, But all the long year through, the joy that you give to others, is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, the poor and lonely and sad, the more of your heart's possessing, returns to you glad."

We believe we all possess the gift of joy in different ways. 
We've asked a few people who have this special gift to share their stories of joy with us. 

 We hope you will join us by leaving comments telling us what joy means to you or how
you share joy with others. 

The lovely Kate Spain will be with us tomorrow so be sure to stop back by!
