Today I look forward to celebrating with my family and friends. Joyous events remind me of how lucky I am that I am surrounded by so many loving people in my day-to-day life. To turn off the cell phones… To step away from technology… To share good food and good conversation… laughter and good will… soothes my soul and calms me in a way that nothing else can. It is important to set time aside to celebrate with the people I love. These celebrations are significant markers… wonderful memories of my life. Today, I am reminded it is not about money… or education… or work… or chores… It is about embracing my family… and holding them close during these lovely shared moments. _ “Dear God, thank you for the gift of joy. Remind me to always set time aside to celebrate with those I love.”
I remember being able to celebrate. It’s coming back now.
Family and friends – and sharing time with them – I’m starting to feel joy again.
They were… and definitely are…. the people that keep the joy in my life…. I have shared on my website how when I was pining for my ex-husband… someone once said to me “You are so sad over him you make us feel like we aren’t valuable to you… when we are the people who love you and want to spend time with you” … that stopped me in my tracks pretty quick! 🙂
