My mom was a creative person. She found joy in creating. When I say this, I really mean it. She was they type of person that did not have to be the “best” at what she was doing she just wanted to be a part of it. She pulled so much joy from it. Each holiday my mom made a homemade card for each family member. You looked forward to it. Think about how simple this is. My mom loved creating and it brought her joy. Now you have people scattered across the country who several times a year are getting “happy mail” and they are experiencing joy. Simple, right?
One of my goals in the past has been to learn from every experience I can. Knowledge is power. I feel strong when I am learning from those around me.
I am a list person and they make me happy. Let’s make a list out of this lesson.
What I learned about JOY from my mom;
1. Do what you love.
2. You do not have to be the best at something for it to make you happy.
3. Share what you love with your family and friends.
Lesson learned Folks!
