I am peeking around and I know joy!

It is how I choose to see things.
I always will.
Some try to shake you to the bottom.
Down where it is dark and not so clean.
I know joy is over the edge.
So I peek.
I tell a friend at work what made me happy today.
I know I seem silly, most of the time.
I know I smile alot.
It is how I choose to see things.
I love peeking over the edge and seeing I am alive.
I build the first fire in the fireplace with the kids.
I order a pizza.
I smile at my friend going to an 11/11/11 party and send her on her way with love!
I giggle at the Gilmore Girls for the millionth time with my daughter.
I see it all.
It is all so real and sweet and whole.
Others don't.
So, sometimes I show them the joys.
Sometimes they stay in the dark.
Sometimes they don't and smile at the wonder of it all, too.
It is up to them.
It is how I choose to see things!
It makes all my senses come alive to peek over the edge at all the light.
I am in love with this day.
Off to sit in front of the fire for the night with a book and my children.
I wish you joy and love and ebulliant moments where someone will just smile at your silliness and not burst the bubble.
I wish you all of this and more.
Remember you are the writer of your own faerytale. Fill it with adventure, light, challenges, sweets, and love, sooo much love.

So thankful as always that our paths have crossed, dear Amy. I love picturing you in your magical house snuggled up with the children, weaving dreams and delights for them. And lucky are all those who are shown joy and wonder by being fortunate enough to know you.

Happy weekend, dear!! xo –

Most precious one...I see you. I hear you. I understand. And it is a beautiful ENIGMA to me that only in BLOGLAND do we find a plethora of kindreds that can hear and see what we experience. I TOO, share my joy at work over the same things and I am looked upon as being "...that ARTSY teacher" as if it were ABNORMAL. Perhaps. Perhaps it is abnormal, in this world that is baffled with an overload of unauthentic joy....peace and JOY to you!!! Anita
