Be Thankful!

It is not happy people who are thankful,
It is thankful people who are happy!

I am thankful for this little family of mine. They're loving and happy. They're fun and loud. They fulfill me with love and joy and I am thankful everyday for each and every one. It's a great feeling to know through ups and downs we're in this together and forever have each others backs.

Life throws out challenges and disappointments that we must deal with... and learn to move on. It's a personal choice to stay in that zone and dwell or reflect on the simple pleasures in life. My simple pleasures include a smile, a hug, a cool breeze, a beautiful sunset, coffee first thing in the morning, my cozy bed and so much more!

This will be one of many THANKFUL posts in The Joyce Diaries. It is so important to stop and smell the roses, be thankful, say a prayer and dwell, if only for a moment, on life's simple pleasure's. Look around, they're everywhere!
