joy-the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation.
Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.

What brings a smile to our face and makes our hearts want our feet to do this?

Maybe it's Spring and the first flowers,
For me, I get a little giddy when I can get family members to really model for me, instead of scattering to the far reaches of the universe as soon as they see me coming with my camera-and yes I do pack my trusty lil camera most every place with me. For the just in cases.

Honey grew up playing in the barn behind their home~along with over half the town's boy population. Those memories bring him smiles and joy,

I know I'm weird, but I really like this little house.
I wish it lived at our yard and I would use it for my Gramma play we ever out grow wanting a play house?
Because you should know that Gramma's are only antique little girls.

But isn't it a cool little place?!

I love this picture!!
Can you see it in their eye's that they are dancing and grinning from the inside all the way out!!

They brought the boat up to sleep in Honey's garage for the winter and came to get it this week-end. They were very excited to be taking it home--I am sure her heart was doing the snoopy dance...

Every one was excited to be getting ready to take it home~

They spent a lot of the summer last year as a family out on the lake, it is a source of a lot of family time, friend's time and just plain makes them happy, happy, happy...

This is part of why it makes them so happy~

Pictures and home movies made my Mom happy, they make me happy and I think I might be passing that on to the next generation...yeeehaaa!

So many things can bring that giddy feeling to us, might be red and shinny things;Might be soft little cousin's, who need big hugs and lots of loves;

They say you have to be happy with your self before you can be happy with others.
We spend the most time with ourselves~so it only stand to reason that we should like to spend time with us...and who else knows how silly we really want to be some times...

Being with the ones you love is the best way I can think of to find joy, smiles and happiness...

Joy is the feeling of grinning inside~
May you find the things that make you want to dance like snoopy, smile til your cheek's hurt and grow warm from the all the grinning going on inside yourself!!!

  1. You know, if you look at 50 with kind of a squint and one eye closed, it looks more like SO. So, then what? So, where have you been? So, where are you? So, where are you going? So, how are you going to get there? In the scheme of things, it isn't a lick different than when you were 16 and said, "So....". There's a bit more where have you been and a bit less where are you going, but they say happiness isn't a destination - it's a journey.
