"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Thursday's thought...

In this world,
full often,
our joys are only the tender shadows
which our sorrows cast.

Henry Ward Beecher

Choosing to see the joy in the shadows today.  There is always something to be grateful for, so in the month of Gratitude I challenge you to look into the shadows of your own life
and choose to see the joy.


  1. You, my dear friend, are one of those joys, I pray and thank God for each day. Thank you for being you, ILY, JoJo.

    God Bless~

  2. I do my best to remember that every day.
    *hugs* God bless. ♥

  3. I am working on that. I used to be able to do that all the time, but now it is hard. I sometimes just want to hide from this world.


  4. Very nice post and thought.

  5. Great words to live by every day, Jojo.
    As I look out the living room window as Tropical Storm Shawn is whipping by the coast of Nova Scotia, I can see a brilliantly coloured Bearberry bush in it's fall apparel.

  6. I've been reading here this morning Jojo trying to catch up with you my friend. It has been way too long since I visited you, and for that it is me who has lost out. I could say how busy I've been, but I know you are just as busy as me, so I will just say that the computer hasn't seen much of me lately. But you know Winter is settling in and so I will be sitting here a lot more often, especially after Christmas. I don't know if Jan. and Feb. is the same for you, but here they seem a year long each.lol!
    I read your previous post and it just made me want to hug you! I know exactly what you mean about the craft thing. If you could see all the supplies I have bought for things I will never get the nerve to try...
    I also loved reading your positive thoughts and how you are not inviting mama pajama back right now. This post on gratitude was a joy to read. Counting our blessings daily is the key to a happy life.
    I want to wish you the best day ever Jojo...I think of you so much in my daily rounds.
    love to you...

  7. OH YES....I really liked this.
    What a beautiful saying.

    I agree, it seems, often times, no matter what....there is that light which warms us enough, just enough sometimes to allow a smile and some joy.

    thank you for your very kind words on my blogg. Sooo appreciated

  8. Grateful for inspiration from friends like you!

  9. Keep up the brave living Jojo, after all it's the only way to survive with any grace or dignity.

  10. This is so beautiful ,jojo.
    WE should be thankful for everything. God has given us.

    Thanks a billion for following . Hope o see you more :).

  11. thank you, dear ((((((((jojo))))))))

  12. No truer word were ever spoken. Happiness is a chose and gratitude can change ones attitude toward life.
