It’s Party Time! Oh, wait, this is Tuesday, not a Friday. Does The Wildwood know what day of the week it is? I doubt it and even if it did, its message is applied to any day of the week.
Today, we’re reminded to be thankful for friends, be joyous in the bond that they provide, for however long they choose to provide it and for however long you choose to accept it.
We meet people along the journey of life. Some we’re with forever, family, childhood friends, some we meet at school, then depart ways. Others we meet and stick with us through college, university, courting, marriage, child-birth, the children growing. We meet people along various stages of this path, some help us through, some help us out of situations. Each time, we make a friend, we find reasons to be joyful, hopeful, happy. Happiness is a moment, it’s not a destination, it’s the journey we’re on where we find the happiness, not actually to point Z.
I have heard some fantastic news today, that a friend has given birth to a little girl, 7lb 12oz today just before lunch time. This is great news and certainly something to celebrate! And there’s another set of twins to come, never mind the little lady I am carrying!
So today, be thankful and grateful for what you can be thankful and grateful for. And if you can find some joy today, be it in a mug of coffee, some time to yourself, a sneaky biscuit or two just for you, the cat or pet snuggling up to you, take it and be joyful.
