JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 115 :: the joy of summer

24 Apr
{it’s coming, it’s coming}

The sun was out today so tonight’s thought on joy is this: short, sweet and to the point. 

Bring on summer and everything that matches longer summer nights and short afternoon naps.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 114 :: the joy of free wifi

23 Apr
{in the sky}

This post is coming from 30,000 feet up in the sky. I’m sitting on a plane. With free wifi. And on days like these, the last of vacation, it is the little things that bring me great joy.

Even free wifi (even if it is spotty).

Joy is Wifi – so high in the sky.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 113 :: the joy of loudness

22 Apr
{make some noise}

I was around many children this week during my travels and there is one thing that sticks out in my mind. They are loud with their joy.

And shouldn’t joy be loud?

I suppose there is a place for quiet joy, gentle revelry, and silent excitement. But the best part of joy should be big and bold and sometimes, very, very loud.   

So go out there and be loud with your joy. If you don’t… who else will?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 112 :: walking on sunshine

21 Apr
{joy}

Sunshine showed up today. What Joy! It felt like spring all around me. It also means that the flowers are not far behind. Which brings me greater joy.

Half the joy is just the anticipation. Waiting for the blooming and unfolding. Both need sunshine to start the process. And to that, I say — welcome Spring — for real.

What joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 110 :: legos

19 Apr
{joyful}

Tonight I played with a few LEGO blocks with a three-year-old. I can honestly say that joy can be stacked with LEGO blocks. One by one, stacking high, all the dreams and wishes a three-year-old can possibly dream up. 

So maybe the best way to beat stress and regain your dreams is to play with a few LEGO blocks? What joy!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 108 :: joy of celebration

17 Apr
{others}

As I pack my bag tonight, getting ready to go see some very special people, I am struck by the massive amount of joy it brings to me.

Joy truly is celebrating others.

Who can you celebrate? 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 107 joy of belief

16 Apr
{joyful}

I was thinking about the importance of believing in joyful things today. Good things. Things to look forward to, things to expect and thinks to aspire to.

Maybe half of the power of joy is in the believing. Because once you believe you look for it. For instance… if you believed in unicorns wouldn’t you look for them?

So here’s to looking for a unicorn.
And believing in something good.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 106 :: joy of pup

15 Apr
{good dog}


There is not much more I can say about joy than this:

Pup turned 17-years-old today. Seventeen!

It’s hard to remember life before Pup around here. From his humble beginnings in a box by the side of the road to being rescued by Justin and brought on our treks across this country and back again. From living on an island to the edge of the gulf, he has survived hurricanes and skunks (not in that order) and paralysis from a slipped disk. He even forgave us (eventually) for bringing home a big ball of energy named Brady.

Pup has come a long way. He is the king of our jungle. Top dog in our book.

Even as he slows down he maintains his crown. What joy it is to watch him age with grace and a few accidents in between. I suppose that’s the joy of life playing out right before our eyes. When we are young we can jump over fences and bound through trees. But when we are old we can walk slowly and gracefully amongst giants.

Pup will always be larger than life in ours. And today we celebrate seventeen good years. 
Joy truly is a good life with a good dog.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 105 :: joy of pizza

14 Apr
{Saturday Night}

Sometimes joy is as simple as a pizza. One shared with loved ones and your favorite girls. 

Last night was chocolate. Tonight is pizza. I guess joy is as simple or as complex as you want it to be. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 104 :: joy of chocolate

13 Apr
{Friday Night}

Friday may be the most “looked forward to” day of the week. Add to that a little bit of chocolate and you might have some serious joy on your hands.  At least, that’s how I felt about my Friday night.

Joy should be as simple as adding a little bit of chocolate. And nothing is needed more than joy these days.

I listened to Oprah’s Super Soul Conversation with Don Miguel Ruiz today. One comment he made caught my attention.

      Oprah:  “The world needs…”
      Don Miguel Ruiz:  “More Joy.” 

It may take more than a little bit of chocolate to add a little bit of joy to our lives… but every bit counts.

Happy Friday.  

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
