Don’t miss the give away at the bottom of this post!
Ah ha! The 14th almost slid by me unnoticed again but I was too quick for it this time! If you’ve been coming to Joy’s Life for a while then you know that the 14th of each month means two things: ONE = a give away (woo hoo!) and TWO = a thank you to you! I set aside the 14th of every month just to say, “Thank you to all of you who keep coming to Joy’s Life!” I thank you SO MUCH! It is wonderful to have such a supportive, friendly, fun and creative group of people come by and hang out with me for a while. This month I was really touched by the kindness, laughter and tears many of you shared with me on my Joy Joyslife Facebook page. We talked about the death of a parent because I lost my Dad in May eleven years ago. We also talked about the difficulties in seeing our children grow, even when they are reaching the milestones we’d always dreamed they would. “Momming” is quite the tough job, isn’t it? My daughter is leaving for college soon and it’s harder for me than I had anticipated. I’m so proud of her but didn’t I just give birth to her about 2o minutes ago? Overall, I decided that maybe this feeling of a heart almost breaking could just be my heart GROWING. I sure am going to miss her but I want her to go and dream her dreams. On this day after Mother’s day, I wish all the Mom’s out there the very best. It’s a joy holding their little hands and a privilege when their big hands reach for yours.
On that tear inspiring note, I’m glad my Puffs Plus are near and I think I should give something silly away, don’t you?
