JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 89 :: long lost friends

2 Apr
{flowers}

I’ve been thinking a lot about my friends lately — and how lucky I am to be connected to so many amazing people in this world. What a true gift, in so many ways that words cannot describe. Joy is one word, that can only sum it up.

I’ve also been thinking about the times that I have felt so very far away from my “people” — and in those times when I cannot reach a friend, it’s always been the flowers that give me support.

The flowers pop up, bloom, and remind me that there is still beauty in this world.  Sometimes I think the flowers are long lost friends because of the joy they bring to me.

And, those flowers have taught me so many valuable lessons.

  • To bloom no matter who is watching.
  • To remember there will always be another spring
  • To celebrate all the various colors and combinations this world has to offer
  • And to recognize beauty in every stage of life

Those flowers are just so full of wisdom, love, and joy, aren’t they?
Thank you, my friends.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 78 :: why not?

21 Mar
{today}

Justin arrived home early today and surprised me with a golf outing. It was a beautiful afternoon and so I said… why not?

I’m wondering why I don’t say that more often? Why not?  

Why not now? Why not today?

Love, Hope & Joy are all meant to be shared, in the now.
So… why not?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 70 :: joy rides

13 Mar
{sunshine}

Whoooo! We are at Day 70 of this year. Already. Hard to believe, isn’t it? It is now mid-March for those keeping track.  And, I am learning that joy is all around us.

In one way I am learning an old lesson – you can do anything. 

But I think the secret formula for that is this: with JOY. Meaning, with joy you can do anything. If you apply passion to the problem, the persistence ignites.

Here’s to your joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 68 :: letting light in

11 Mar
{daylight savings}

Ah, sun! Welcome back to our world. It felt so good to see you today. So good, in fact, we spent the afternoon outside — in shorts! Golfing.

Well, Justin was in shorts, at least. I was still in a jacket and yoga pants, but you know, same difference. Feeling the sun on my face felt so good – like an old friend, really.

…and that had me thinking about love and joy … and letting it soak in just like the sunshine. 

SO… here’s to longer days and more sunshine. What will you do with your extra sunshine?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 65 :: the joy of womanhood

8 Mar
{femme forward}

Happy International Women’s Day. 

What joy it is to be a woman. It’s also full of hormonal highs and lows, the most excruciating heartbreaks and incredibly heartwarming moments the world could ever offer. There are days of intuitiveness and powerful conquering of mountains and molehills and everything in between.

Everyone’s experience is unique and different. And yet, it’s a huge circle of so many interrelated things.

And it’s so worth the ride. What joy it is to be a woman.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 63 the joy of food

5 Mar
{oh, Broccoli}

Today I was told to eat more broccoli. Which is okay. Because I love broccoli.

I’ve always thought that food was a form a love. Even when I worked in marketing at Baskin-Robbins I felt the intrinsic, visceral pull of food. Of course, that was ice cream which may not be considered a food category… but who doesn’t love ice cream?

Today, I was also overJOYed to find a doctor who analyzed my entire being… from blood labs to dinner plate. Not only did he listen to all my thyroid concerns and follow up on every question I asked. He suggested potential solutions, more tests we can run ….and then he told me to eat more broccoli. 

It has me thinking about the form food takes in our lives. Data in, data out, as they say.

Food is medicine. And food is love. For our family. Our community. Our Earth. And self.
And it tastes good too (even broccoli!)
What joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 60 :: loving more

2 Mar
{joy}

On this Friday night, I’m just thinking about love — and how much it relates to joy. Someone asked me last week the difference between pleasure and joy? And I’m thinking about the difference between love and joy. All so very similar… on the same plane and in the same range. But so very different.

At the core of them all, I still find love. And so tonight, I’m still thinking about love — and loving more.  

Period.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 43 :: a lesson in love

14 Feb
{loving}

I have to admit, it’s been a rough Valentine’s Day around here. What was to be our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple was starting to look like it could be the last day we would have Pup.

His back legs gave out last night right before bed. We watched him all night, and there were moments of touch and go.  Then, miraculously, he made a rebound around noon.

Ironically, it was right as the mailman arrived.

I was on a conference call watching Pup’s every move as he slept at my feet. Brady heard the familiar mail truck sounds outside the door and began to bark his dutiful warning sounds. Right then, Pup perked up and started barking too. Then he ran to the door.

Halalueleah. Bestill my aching heart. Pup has been fine ever since. But it’s a reminder to me about life and love.

Love can hurt so good.

Pup will be seventeen in a few months, and part of me thinks he’s been with us this long because we have loved him so hard. Someday it will come. And we will grieve. But not as much as we have all loved each other.

And that might just be the biggest message joy has to share with me. Love and Joy. Joy and Love. Such a fine pair.

A reflection of what we put into life and what returns to us in spades. 

And in the end, it was the best Valentine’s Day ever.
Happy Valentine’s Day – remember you are loved. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
