Gift of Giving


The picture was taken from Alice in Wonderland, Disney book.

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness.
If you are attentive, you will see it.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

May your cups be filled with joy.

In paying attention to the word JOY this year,
I have realized that giving to others gives me great joy.
For those of you that received cups of tea from me this week,
those cups were filled with joy.

It is great fun and my heart sings to share JOY.

That is a cute illustration. I like the quote too - it reminds me of "stop and smell the roses".

Your blog does seem joyful and thank you for the JOY of reading it.
