the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desire
J.O.Y, its amazing how one three letter word can really make a difference in someones life. This has been popping into my head a lot these days. I think that everyone needs to have a little joy in their lives. Especially now a days when all we hear about is how bad the economy is, the war in Iraq, people getting killed. Its horrible to listen to day in and day out.
This past week was my choir concert and my entire choir decided to brighten christmas for some kids that were not of the best situations and probably would not have a christmas. This broke all of our hearts. No child should go with being able to celebrate christmas or whatever their holiday celebration maybe.
Knowing that these children we going to have a christmas brought warmth and joy to my heart.
I encourage you all to go out and find some joy, whatever that maybe. Where it be taking a break from studying for finales and hanging out with friends, giving back to the community in someway. No matter what it is, find it and hold onto it. You are all wonderful people and deserve to have joy not just during the holiday season, but everyday of the year!
