Finding Joy

Sixty Seconds with Judi

This year has been a hard year for me personally.  I don’t want to dwell on the particulars I just want to share what I have learned. I won’t to go all “Oprah” on you; however, I feel this is so important I need to pay it forward. My gift to you.

I think I have found the secret to life! It’s not one individual thing but many things wrapped up in a single day, in a single moment. The secret really is as simple as Finding Joy!

Yes, find your joy. I know that sounds almost ridiculous. But look around you. Especially this time of year. Listen to the music, see the lights, talk to a child, sit by a fire.  Try giving more of yourself to those who need you most. It’s not about what we have or what we get or the even the circumstances we are in.  Look beyond that. Surround yourself with the people who mean the most and share those moments together. Be present in the moment of the season and of every day. It won’t always be easy but there is joy out there for the taking. Grab hold and pass it on!

We would love to share our joy of the season with you. So, stop in and feel the season surround you. Pick out a tree, sing around a bonfire, find the perfect gift or just watch the joy in your children’s eyes as they sit on Santa’s lap.

So, from our family to yours have a joyful holiday and peace in your new year.
