JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 49 :: joy of friends

19 Feb
{inside}

I’ve been thinking a lot about friends these days. The people in my life, who have come in and out at just exactly the right times. 

There are few words to describe it, but there is so much joy.

It has me thinking about the joy of friends. The lifelong joy and this very moment joy, and all the tiny turns in between.

A good friend is a mirror, holding you up to your greatest potential. And catching so you don’t fall to your lowest point. They are givers of good in so many ways.

I feel blessed in the friendship department. The sisterhood of the traveling friends. You know who you are!

Here’s to all the friends. New. Old. Silver. Gold.
Thank you for the joy. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 40 :: en-joy

11 Feb
{the journey}

My dear friend Diane wrote me and asked me to look up the definition of “enjoy” — so I did.

en·joy
take delight or pleasure in (an activity or occasion).

I like it. It fits so nicely with my promise this year. And it has me thinking about the importance of enjoying the little moments and the big moments — as well as the crazy, stressful, terrorizing ones too.

What if we could enjoy every moment. Every. Single. Moment. I suppose that would be living in the present. The right now.
This moment.

Justin once told me, a long time ago, that life was just the two of us in a car and the rest was scenery. He meant we would get through it…. and get through so much we have, together.

As we bought a new car yesterday and we drove it off the lot and into our life I thought about that saying again.

“It’s you and me in a car and everything else is just scenery.”

I rather enjoy our new car’s heated leather seats but I know what matters most is the scenery, the person you’re driving with, and enjoying every moment that goes by.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 38 :: the joy of showing up

7 Feb
{everyday}

Ah, perseverance. I was thinking of you today. And how much joy I get from showing up here every night. It’s not like I always have something profound to say, but I do feel the power of perseverance in this promise. 

It is the power of showing up.

Joy.
I do not know where you will take me this year… but it’s already starting to get interesting.

Here’s to showing up!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 30 :: oh joyous everyday

30 Jan
{every single day}

I was thinking about everyday joy today. You know, the kind of joys that we take for granted. Or, at least I do.

Things like…

  • Spotify (seriously! Any kind of music I want at the touch of my fingertips)
  • Fun people to work with and kind friends to catch up with
  • Yummy dinners cooked by my sweet hubby
  • Puppies sleeping at my feet
  • Dark chocolate
  • Hot tea
  • Netflix
  • Yarn

It’s always about the little things.
Always.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
