Webster’s Dictionary defines joy as a source or cause of delight. What brings you joy in your life?
As a new year begins, a lot of people reflect over the year. This is why I have been doing a countdown of the recipes I’ve shared over the year.
Today not only am I going to share the top 10 desserts from this year, something that brings people joy, I’m also sharing a list of the top 7 things that bring me joy.
Walt Disney World brings me joy.
I remember walking to the patio at the Contemporary Resort the day after Thanksgiving and tearing up when I saw Cinderella Castle. At that moment, I felt such joy.
Walt Disney World brings me joy because it was where I learned to take care of myself during my College Program. When I’m there, I feel as though I’m home.
My boys bring me such joy.
The Imaginative One is very sarcastic. He also has a passion for reading. He’s been greeting me with “Hello, dearest mother,” “Hello, third tallest person in the house,” or “Guten Tag” lately.
The Wee One wants to be a cook or chef when he grows up. He’s almost always complimentary with the meals I have cooked.
You never know what the boys are going to say or do.
Photography brings me joy.
I love to photograph life. I previously wrote about the importance of taking photos.
This is a photo that I took last night at a local mill.
Travel brings me joy.
I love exploring new and old places. It’s fun to talk to locals. Hubby and I have traveled to places like Chicago, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Lake Buena Vista. We’ve also traveled to Canada and the Bahamas.
One of the items on our bucket list is to visit a zoo or aquarium in every state. This goal allows us to visit so many new places.
The Muhammad Ali Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.
Sunrises and sunsets bring me joy.
Each sunrise and sunset reminds me of the beauty God created for us mere mortals. There is always a beginning and an end. He reminds us that each day is a new beginning.
This blog brings me such joy.
I’ve got several other blogs. Ramblings of My Crazy Life and View from My Lens.
Lately I’ve figured out ways to work around some of the kinks with this blog. So I may just use this blog instead of the other two blogs.
This blog allows me to share recipes and now deal with the grief of losing my sister.
