Finding joy...

I've found, doesn't have to be that difficult. Yet, here it is a week into May and I've been so busy, I feel a little grumpy. What? No, that cannot be! I'm going to slow down, relax and remember all the wonderful things that have given me joy this first part of May.

"Garden shopping" with a friend. No, this is not my garden...heavens, I wish it were! It's that of Steve Hess of From the Summer's Garden. He makes and sells the most wonderful garden accessories and stones.

With all the rain we've had this season, the hosta are crowding out most of the weeds. Now that's a joy!

Oh joy, the fairies are arriving!

I think it is safe to say I've been busy in the garden...not to mention, attending a concert with the "jewel", birthday dinner with son and his family (and of course, my sweetie), lots of hugs from the little students and an overnight with the grandgirls. My goodness there is certainly no room for the grumps!!
May you find joy in your days...Happy Mother's Day!

One of my favorite expressions (it's on a plaque in my kitchen) is this:
"Happiness must be grown in ones own garden" and
I do think you've got that one down pretty well!
