Down In My Heart

If you've blogged for very long I bet you've written a comment that sparked a post of your own. I wrote a comment to a friend late last night that has just stayed with me. I'm not sure why, but I've decided to post here, just as I wrote it.
Oh, Suvarna. What a post! First, I love that photograph of you. Second, I love the topic of this post. What brings joy into my life? My daughter, my husband, time spent praying, blogging, flowers, snail mail, water, music... I could go on, but instead I have to tell you a story. I have had a crap day. Just a really, really bad day preceded by two difficult weeks. When I got home, my wonderful husband (who knew about my day from a phone call) took over. Dinner, playing with Sloane, bedtime, everything. I just got to sit and do a whole lot of nothing. Then, I get here and am smiling back at your beautiful, smiling face. Grinning at your galoshes. Remembering my last trip to the ocean. I clicked on the song and these incredible singers start belting it out at me, "I've got joy!" I tell you the truth, I burst into tears. Just sat there crying. Because I do. Even on crap days. Even when I feel too tired even to go to bed. I do have the joy. Thanks for reminding me.

Wishing you much joy of your own, dear friends. Tonight. And always.
