On joy...

A friend sent this to me in an email. I do not know who the author is. I wish I did. I loved it and wanted to share it. Thanks, my friend, for bringing joy daily to my life!!! Enjoy!...

Allow joy!

Joy fills your life to the extent that you allow it.

Let go of the frustration, the anger, envy and
worry. And joy comes quickly to fill the void.

The smallest things can inspire joy. And the
biggest moments in life benefit when they are
