  1. Hi Carla, I love your list of little things that brings you JOY. I found out it's all around us all the time if we only learn to live in the moment sometimes.
    We're getting a snow storm today and I'm sure that the children are all excited about that.
    I love you too. Hugs

  2. Coming in from the cold....yes!! The chill just started to set in here and the first few flakes of snow hit the ground last night. A simple pleasure for sure, but getting warm feels so good! That's a great one!

  4. I've been browsing around in the archives here and just noticed that your birthday is TODAY! So I hope you will have a very happy birthday indeed!

    It's snowing here and I don't have to go out in it, so that's one of those joyful little things to me as well.

  13. What a great idea, Carla, to have a Joy List to share with others and to help get through the dark, cold months.

  16. I love the joy list. We've just had a wee bit of snow so far, but it's very cold! Hubby and I both are battling colds/viruses. At least now I've an excuse to sit down and catch up a bit on blogging!
    Hope you had a nice birthday and enjoy your Christmas season! Hugs, Cheryl
