What brings you joy in your life?

I came across this blog, Barking Mad and Audrey is having a blog giveaway for a $300.00 Target Gift Card.She asked the question "What brings you joy in your life"? and I had to answer because I asked myself , Do I have joy? and Do we find joy by other people or is it just in our hearts?
This year has been sad and life isn't what I ever expected.
I always found joy with my family , get togethers, cooking or just watching a T.V show with them.
I have been blessed with having 4 children , 3 boys and a girl and I know I live for them because they bring me my greatest joy. Their birth ,birthdays ,graduations and getting married. You never expect to lose a child . I never thought I would lose 2 sons, two beautiful sons,who should be married ,having their own families,instead I hold pictures of them.
It brings me joy to have known them, loved them ,that I was their Mother
Finding joy in my heart to carry on and make this Holiday special for my other children.
Joy is the little things . A hug,a smile ,making them all stand there because I am taking a picture.I find joy in a phone call,even if its for a minute to say Hi,I am thinking of you and love you.
Giving others kindness,making them feel good ,loved and happy.That brings me joy. Helping someone that needs a helping hand ,being able to help. That brings me joy.
Placing my faith in God ,knowing he would only give my shoulders and heart what I can carry.
Joy comes from within , no one can give it to me,I have to find it for myself.
I find joy in the little things.
I hope you find joy in your life.

I was so sad this week
My son's birthday was on Wednesday,the 16th, he would have been 23. It was the first birthday I had without David.

Do you ever have one of those weeks ,your sad,in a slump and just can't shake it ?
I always tell myself,
Everyday offers gifts,untie the ribbons.
Then it happened ,a truck pulled up outside
A white box with the words,Fairytale Brownies written on the outside.

It was a wonderful surprise!
I opened the box and saw the most beautiful package, a gift for David and me.
I sat back and enjoyed the best brownie I have ever eaten, Fairytale Brownies

The Angels are safekeeping my Mom

My heart is broken.
My Mom passed last night.
I know she is with the angels and we all loved her. A strong ,wonderful and beautiful woman.
The angels are safekeeping you and I miss you.
We were all at her side,my brothers and sister,her sister,and her other daughters.
Ma Green is now with my Dad,my brother and her 2 grandsons.
My Mom did so much with her life , she worked hard all her life and touched so many lives.
My Mom has and will be helping people that don't even know her.
She will continue to do so.
My Mom fought for years for people that have been exposed to asbestos ,as a result of which, eventually contract mesothelioma and pass.So many families will be helped. My Dad ,passed in Dec.1989.of mesothelioma and because of my Mom's lawsuit,against.General Dynamics Corp./Electric Boat Division , many people will be compensated, families will be helped nation wide.
Mom ,I love you and will miss you!

Boo Bear

My Boo Bear is missing and I haven't found him yet. I have made fliers and posted around town,contacted the Animal Control Officer. I hope I find him ,he is my baby.
Boo is handicapped and I am hoping someone took pity on him and took him in. He is a sweetheart ,he always wants to be held.

A Mother's Love

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. - Unknown

A Mother's Love
Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly. - Sarah Malin
