Jingle Bell Joy

I believe that you can seek to be happy, but true joy is a gift.

Sometimes our joy comes in big events, like weddings and births, but often it comes in much smaller, less momentous packages: like a child's Christmas program.

Wishing you your own special Christmas joys,

She's so sweet! Thanks for sharing. What a wonderful joyous memory. Did you get the package that I sent last week? I was hoping that it would arrive before Christmas.

Have a wonderful one!
