JOY comes to me

Joy has come to me in many ways recently.
From sharing a meal in my back yard with special friends.
To seeing the first blooms of pink hollyhocks.
The seeds were given to me by a blogger friend, Deena, two years ago.
To receiving a beautiful note and JOY pin in the mail from Mary Jane, a tearoom owner in Ohio.
To a lovely photograph with JOY from another blogger friend, Adrienne.
JOY comes in many shapes and forms.
Thanks to dear friends that remember me with JOY.

Mary Jane also included this lovely quote on JOY by Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Poet)

And Joy is Everywhere;
It is in the Earth's green covering of grass;
In the blue serenity of the Sky;
In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
In the severe abstinence of gray Winter;
In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame;
In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
In Living;
In the exercise of all our powers;
In the acquisition of Knowledge;
in fighting evils....
Joy is there Everywhere.
