Thunder crashes on occasion amidst the steady pitter patter of the rain in the chimney and on the windows. Such a beautiful sound.
I’m tucked in bed now, my book still laying beside me, beckoning me to open it again.
For a moment I feel the lonely, embracing it as a friend. It’s good to cherish what you have and if you don’t accept the lonely, how will you appreciate the connection?
But I’m not really lonely. My life is so full of wonderful people that I frequently think I must be the luckiest woman alive.
I have friends that nudge me to move when I find myself becoming stale and stagnant, friends that inspire my creativity with their own, friends that have taught me what love is, truly.
So tonight, laying here, I am so grateful for every one of you that is a party of my world. You are incredible and amazing and I am looking forward to the next time I get to hug your neck and talk with you.
I couldn’t ask for more.
About Shannon Joy
I am a single mama with two incredible munchkins. I confuse most people and the deeper you delve into the rabbit hole, the more lost you will become. I play a lot, work a lot, learn a lot, volunteer a lot and tend to do a lot... I love my life. The past few years have been an incredible journey, full of ups and downs. Thankfully, I have made the choice to see challenges as opportunities and it makes me so much stronger than I ever thought possible. I love to write and paint and feel that being creative is my God-given talent. I am so excited to share my life and experiences with you. Although I am a diamond in the rough, I known that I am being chiseled and hewn by experiences and grace and perseverance. I love comments and feedback, so please send a little love when you can. I will always try to respond personally and in a timely fashion.
