pure joy

This weeks theme at Mama Says Om  is “joy”.

pure joy, originally uploaded by Barbara Lee.


This picture is joyful on so many levels. Noah has become an amazing father in these past 4 months… he can make Maggie smile like no one else… and those smiles are the ones I watch her reliving in her dreams every morning. Both Noah and I never knew how joyful we could be until we had Maggie in our lives. And the thing about joy, at least in how I think of it… it doesn’t always equate to “happiness”. Some times there are hard times, and some times there are peaceful times… but to be joyful is to have a peace and understanding that the world, and your life, can be an optimistic and beautiful thing if your heart is in the right place.

My heart is with these two beautiful human beings, who have brought me more joy than I’ve ever known.
