Joyful Memorial Day

 “It’s not joy that makes us grateful, it’s gratitude that makes us joyful.” 
~ Brene Brown

I am feeling so grateful these days. Grateful to be alive. Grateful for my family & friends. Grateful for the freedom I have to express myself and to enjoy this day--a national holiday--because of brave souls.

Joy truly is the simplest form of gratitude. I get to see beauty all around. And I don't want to forget how fortunate I am.

Right now, I am art journaling while enjoying the rest of my morning coffee. I could hear my son and husband playing downstairs. I am grateful for the sounds of laughter, of water, of the gentle breeze moving the leaves. I am thankful. So very thankful...

Have a safe and wonderful and joyful Memorial Day!
