After the holidays I shop the clearance sales.  At Target I found a sparkly word JOY with a cute little snowflake in the O.  I had been toying around with having a word to focus upon for 2013.  I'd not ever done this before but JOY was staring me in the face.  I need more joy in my life.  It should take the place of worry.  Of frustration.  Of the mundane.  Yes, joy would be my word for 2013.

So, how is that going for ya?

You've read about our dogOur fish.  Our water logged floor and bookshelf.  Those were days 1-4 of the year.

Day 5 I find out that a friend who I've known online for many years was killed in a car accident.  A woman who I've come to call friend.  A woman with 6 children, a husband, pets.  A woman who recovered from a devastating car accident that left her struggling through multiple surgeries to get back to approaching normal after 2 years.  It's hard for me to wrap my head around.

I'm having a hard time finding the joy in this year.

I know I need to look for the positives.  To focus on what I have.  And I will.  I need to get through this first. This stretch of death and sorrow.  I cannot turn on a dime and see the joy. 

Not yet.
