Day 3 of the February Challenge to spread JOY! Today, five places that bring me joy:
1. Home with my family and sometimes alone

2. My bed sandwiched between my feather bed & feather comforter

3. A beach, the beach almost any beach

Do you have anywhere that brings you joy?

ah this is a tougher one, Day 4, February Challenge spreading the joy, what five quotes bring you inspiration and make you joyful?:

1.) 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

2.) I Love Summer – Olaf “Let It Go”

3.) While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.~author unknown

4.) Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take … but by the moments that take our breath away!

5.) An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.
-Chinese proverb
