Be Happy. Give Hugs. Find Joy. | Thursday Favorite Things

This week I’m unable to share features.
I hope you won’t be terribly disappointed.

Life can be complicated. It can be happy or sad.
My wish today is that everyone could live a perfectly happy life with nothing but sweet joys.
We all know that isn’t reality.
Sometimes sad things happen.

Please say a little prayer for me,
maybe light a candle,
and promise me
that you will give someone you love an extra hug today.

I want you all to enjoy Thursday Favorite Things.
If you feel inclined,
leave me a comment telling me one thing in the world that makes you the happiest.
Sometimes the joy of others eases the grief of another.

Thank you for understanding why I couldn’t bring some amazing features to you this week.
I do look forward to sharing features.
I’m sorry I couldn’t do it this week.

Olivia, this is my first visit to your blog to link up and I’m so sorry for your pain. It sounds like you lost someone close to you. I am praying that the Lord will comfort you and lift you up to joy again very soon.

One of the things that brings me the most happiness is the great connections I’ve made with so many bloggers. Everyone has been so encouraging and helpful!


What makes me happiest is sitting by the ocean, watching the sunset. Sadly, I have not been able to see that in quite some time. I think I am due.

My heart is with you as you have had a rough week, my friend.

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with something sad. You asked for a joyful comment to lift you up… I gardened yesterday and made a butterfly bath. The butterflies will definitely bring me joy.
