A Reason to Laugh and Smile

I will admit it, my life has been hard. Maybe not as hard as some people’s lives, but hard nonetheless. I don’t laugh easily and I don’t smile much. But this quick email from a friend today, made me do both:

When sleeping beauty
wakes up call snow white
and we’ll chat for awhile.

She knows I am on an odd sleep schedule… staying up all night and sleeping during the day. Hence the Sleeping Beauty reference. And since it is snowing outside, well that’s why the Snow White reference. It was clever and amusing. Probably why I love her so.

#joyfuljan – Day Twenty-two

For today’s #joyfuljan, I find joy in my very own Winter Wonderland.

The snow has been gently falling since around 7:30 am. It began with small flakes, barely falling and has increased to big fluffy flakes and near-blizzard conditions. I love snow and the biggest joy for me is when it is first falling and the world around me is silent, white, and at peace.

What are you joyful about today? Let me know in the comments.

Throughout the month of January, I will be celebrating Joyful January with Satya and Kaspa over at Writing Our Way Home
