Joy in the Ordinary

Look around, really look around and you will find joy... joy in the everyday... joy in the ordinary things.
Celebrating  my 42nd birthday.
Mama you are how old? 
Making time to do something I enjoy.
I was published!
Made something for a basket that had been empty for far to long.
Even when it is cold the sight of the sunshine lifts my spirits!
Tackling some put off task.
My imagative crew on their fire truck.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
