JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 167 :: dance with joy

16 Jun
{dance, dance, dance}

Tonight we celebrate the marriage of Andy and Courtney. It’s been a day of blood, sweat and tears.

The blood is for family and the beauty of reunion. The hugs the stories the memories all wrapped into a moment that will become more folklore for generations to come.

The sweat is from the hot Maine summer sun beating down on us as we awaited the lovely couple’s entrance and nuptials while fanning our faces with the program. It was a blessing that the sky was blue and the sun was out. It was a perfect day for the perfect couple with all the heat that comes with it.

And then there were the tears. From the moment the bride came into view, to the heartfelt vows shared, to remembering those who couldn’t be with us on this very important day, to the speeches, the toasts, and the first dance.

And then… there was the dancing. From littles to bigs, from young to old, there was the shared vibration of music, love and laughter.

It was a good reminder to live, love, laugh and dance.

There is joy in dancing. On any day. At any age. But especially at weddings.

May joy be with you.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 165 :: joy flies

13 Jun
{wings}

If time flies why can’t joy?

Tomorrow we head to Maine and then on to a wedding and family gathering. It all has me thinking about the joy that comes with family and friends and feasts. It is the connection, really. The joy of connection.

It all reminds me that joy flies on the wings of love.


 

Here’s to joy connections.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 164 :: the joy of each moment

12 Jun
{savor}

I’m winding down my day and sitting in bed writing my blog post. One of the best benefits of writing this daily blog is carving out time to reflect and savor each day. This is the time that I allow myself to review, rewind and relax into what was good, what was bad, and what is now behind me.

I love the word savor. SAVOR! It’s so saucy and so simple at the same time.


So what could be more joyful than taking the time to savor the day?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 156 :: joy of lawn games

4 Jun
{games}

Tonight we played lawn games in a spontaneous, last-minute gathering. It was fun and full of joy. And… it was on a school night!

That reminds me that the best of games are played on nights when you have to go to bed on time. It forces you to pack it all in and soak up as much sun before it sets as possible.

Part of en-joying things in life is going along with it all, letting it be spontaneous and free. For us, that meant a seriously entertaining ladder ball tournament on the lawn with two little girls who aren’t quite so little anymore, but whose personalities grow bigger by the day. What joy it is to watch these little beings grow. 

En
joy the night.   

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 152 :: joyful hugs

31 May
{hugs}

There is so much joy in a good hug. I know because I come from a lineage of great huggers – including my dear Mama Sling. She gave the best hugs. Even when I thought I didn’t need one. It didn’t stop her – she always knew that deep down inside I wanted one of her big bear hugs.

No. Actually. She knew I needed it.

So, tonight, I was thrilled to get a hug. From a dear friend. Who I haven’t seen in so very long. But time holds no space between friends and hugs.

Sometimes the best joy is the simple things.
Like a great hug.

Joy is hugging a friend. So… go hug someone!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 151 :: joyful love

30 May
{grace}

I am so overwhelmed with love today. So many beautiful notes and messages from friends about saying goodbye to Pup. You don’t know how much it means to me…

….well maybe you do.

It seems that losing a cherished pet is a universal exercise in grief. And in so many ways a connection from the animal world straight to the heart of the matter.

There is so much in this world that is hard to agree on, but, not when it comes to saying goodbye to those we love. Especially our pets.

That is an exercise in love. And in joy, there is always love.
Thanks for the love. I will repay the favor when and if the day comes.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 148 :: sneaky joy

27 May
{let joy in}

We went on a joy ride today.  A random, fun, joy ride that led us from park to coast to brewery and back again. It was a “joy break” and a “joy ride” all wrapped into one adventure.

We passed the Ski to Sea Race along the way with so many other people on their own adventures. 

Our adventure got me thinking about random joy, and how sometimes, the best joy is the kind that sneaks up on you. Here’s to sneaky joy!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 147 :: joyful creating

26 May
{day by day}

There are 218 days remaining in this year. I know, because I had to look up the day of the year just to make sure I was on track. For those of you counting…it is officially Day 147.

Counting the days is a useful process…sometimes. Other times, it just makes me feel behind schedule. Today it has me wondering what else JOY has up its sleeve for me this year. In the 218 days left that will unfold one day at a time.

And, in so many ways, that’s what makes these promises fun and fulfilling – never knowing where they will take me. It’s also what keeps me focused and fired up. So many surprises in store, so much JOY to create.

What joy are you creating?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
