JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 342 :: joy is being relaxed

9 Dec


{relax} 

I spent the weekend relaxing because that is what weekends are for.  A little fun, a little Christmas shopping, a little baking and a little sun.

Earlier this week, at the Massachusetts Conference for Women, Elizabeth Gilbert, spoke about her wish for women — it was that they were no longer longing to be fighters, warriors, tough and strong (because they already are) but that they would all be relaxed. 

That word has been reverberating in my mind ever since. Relaxed. Relaxed. Relaxed. I love being relaxed, although, at times, it makes me lazy. But I do think it brings me joy. 
 

So, here’s to being relaxed… whatever that may mean to you!

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 338 :: joy is the fireside 

4 Dec



{warm and cozy} 

After a long, long day my joy tonight was being cozy by the fire. We don’t have a fireplace so I was thrilled to discover the Netflix FIreplace for your home. I know, I’m late to this party, but I was fully inspired by the flames. 

It’s like a real fire, because it is, just on your TV screen. I think it is kind of silly that I am as overjoyed as I am…but I am. What joy! A fire you don’t have to tend! 
 

Joy is chestnuts roasting by an open fire…..what brings you joy?

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 333 :: joy is christmas shopping

2 Dec



{christmas} 

Ho, Ho, Ho! Today my joy was Christmas shopping and Christmas searching. Shopping is both in real life and online sport for me these days. Both have a place in my heart. 

But, what makes it all the more joyful is the act of choosing for those I love. The holidays may be the season where we think of others first. But it can be so hard not to pull something off the shelf for yourself…. and then put it back again. 

‘Tis the season to be shopping and shipping and searching for joy.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 331 :: joy is friday, friday, friday

30 Nov

{rest} 

My body is tired but my heart is full. It’s a Friday night and the week is complete. It started with one visitor leaving and is ending with another one arriving. I love the revolving door and all it brings to us. What joy to have guests and loved ones. 

And what joy it is to know we can sleep in tomorrow! Sometimes Friday is all it takes to feel wonderous joy. 
 

Here’s to Friday, Friday, Friday. 

More tomorrow… 
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 328 :: joy is seeing my girls

27 Nov

{virtual} 

Tonight my joy was seeing my girls – even though it was virtually it was worth it! There are so many miles between us but so many shared moments of love and laughter. Each time I see them it’s like no time has passed between the last visit, the last laugh, the last hugs. 
 

Joy is friendship and my friends are my joy. 

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 327 :: joy is popcorn

26 Nov


{pop pop pop} 

It’s Monday. So today my joy is simple. A handful of popcorn. It takes me back to the movie theater and the magical mystery of watching stories unfold. 

As I sit here tonight, eating my popcorn, thinking about what story Joy has unfolded for me this year, I am still a little baffled. So much has changed this year, losing our Pup and moving from west to east, and starting a new job. And, yet, so much joy has unfolded too. 

There have been some surprises too.

For one, I took a DNA test and found out I am 100% European. Which is only a surprise because I have been told my entire life that I am part Native American. Like a lot. The story goes that my grandmother was half Native American which should give me enough DNA to show up on a test. Instead, I find out that I am 64% British & Irish,11% French and German and 2% Eastern European, and .6% Scandinavian. Which leaves me 100% baffled.  

But, in some odd way, it also brings me great joy. It’s like having a front seat with a fistful of popcorn watching the story of my life and DNA unfold. 
 

Sometimes joy is a handful of popcorn, a mystery unfolding and a moment of joy.  

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 325 :: joy is a christmas tree

24 Nov

{douglas fir} 

Tonight joy arrived in the form a Christmas tree. A real, sappy, wonderful smelling Christmas tree. 

It’s the first real tree we have ever had and sits in direct contrast to the little fake tabletop one that was our holiday ornament of years past. It’s a Christmas tree, a real tree! And it brings me great joy and the fresh smell of memories.
 

Joy is a Christmas Tree, especially after not having one for so very long.
Merry, joyful Christmas season. 

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 324 :: joy is 32 days

23 Nov

{until christmas} 

Santa Claus is coming to town…  in 32 days. It’s officially the holiday season. Thanksgiving is over and with it so is this year coming to a close. What an amazing journey it has been so far. 

We have seen so many twists and turns, some of great joy (moving back to Patriot Nation) and others of great sorrow (saying goodbye to Nancy and Pup). As the year turns its final corner into the final month, I have to wonder what joy is waiting for us in the coming month?
 

Thirty-two days until Christmas. Thirty-eight days until the New Year. 
May each one be full of joy. 

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 323 :: joy is pie

22 Nov


{happy thanksgiving} 

If ever there is a night to think joy is pie, it is tonight. And, to add personalized mini pies to the mix including apple, pecan, pumpkin and cherry, well … that leaves us where we started.

Joy is pie.  
 

Happy Thanksgiving!

More tomorrow… 
Lovemore,
Jamie
