Joy from Mi to You

Joy from Mi to You

So wow, 2016 – What a year. I feel like I have been hit in the face, I’m dumbstruck! I contemplate how I can help. I try to keep up to date on current events. Make phone calls, sign petitions, walk in protest. Ready with my warrior paint on, I stand ready to raise my fist. Mostly though, I try to love a little deeper, listen a little better, live a little more.

I question what I do in my life.
How can this be helpful?
I walk, I work, I keep going.
I realize that I am so fortunate.
Much of my time is spent trying to create little bits of beauty.
One small gesture.
It feels at times selfish and indulgent but it is my way of connecting to the broader world.
A little piece of me to you.
We become united in a small way.
The thought of you wearing something that was made with my heart and hand brings me joy.

Here’s wishing that there will be Joy to this world of ours!
