Logging onto WDC and finding an email from a long lost friend ranks pretty high on my Joy List! *Heart*

My joy came recently from watching a Golden Retriever puppy have a fight with a daffodil.

Contributor: Helene - Missing being here! @ 04-08-11 @ 8:21pm
The Jacaranda trees scattering their purple florettes over Pretoria like confetti in October. *Suitheart* The smooth drive down Beatrix when you strike the first traffic light green. *Suitheart* Double-thick chocolate milkshake.

My favourite thing EVER is when i sit down to watch an adaptation of a beloved book and instantly fall in love with the film too. I love to see a director so in touch with my ideas and feelings!

Contributor: Lobelia is truly blessed @ 03-17-11 @ 12:14am
quiet reflection as I kneel at daily mass- such peace at the start of my day!

Contributor: Finn O'Flaherty @ 03-16-11 @ 5:46am
Nestling your face in a big fluffy white towel that's just come off a hot radiator! Highly recommended on a winters day.

Contributor: Fi @ 03-07-11 @ 4:35pm
Christ is the joy of everyday of my life!! Yes, and walking barefooted up a dusty country road in mid-summer or snuggling near a fire with book and coffee and chocolate! Mmmm...

Shopping... oh there's nothing better than bringing home something new, often useless, but new.

Contributor: Alka @ 11-01-10 @ 3:26am
Sitting on a mountainside slope looking across valleys chatting with friends, nature at its best--beaches, mountains, forests, riverside, sitting quietly outside a temple where prayers are being offered, cooking food for family, meeting old friends....

Contributor: Carol St. Ann @ 10-20-10 @ 8:57am
My loved ones! The sweet sentimental scent of autumn in NJ, needing a sweater, writing outside, my writing friends, sea sounds, walking through my fall garden, pumpkins, making photographs, and flying soaring on the wings of possibility.

Contributor: Moonlight writer @ 10-20-10 @ 3:09am
The midnight silence of my home with autumn pressing against the window, writing by candle light. Pedicures and day dreaming.Walking through fog laden streets of Carmel at midnight. The crashing of a midnight surf. Snuggling with my family on movie night!

Contributor: Morbidpetal @ 10-11-10 @ 6:15am
Knowing that in an hour I'll be on my way back home where the love of my life is waiting for me while I have to attend brain melting classes.

Contributor: Summer Day♥ @ 10-06-10 @ 7:29pm
The little quirks people do when they think no one's watching. Dancing (offbeat) to my favorite song. The smile of a friend. *BigSmile*

Contributor: Hannah ♫♥♫ @ 10-05-10 @ 12:31pm
Putting on my snowsuit, making a snow chair and basking in the balmy February Wisconsin sun! LOL, it helps with sunlight deprivation. *Laugh*
