Journaling Joy

Sometimes it's the craziness in life that makes it interesting.
I have always thought of the ebb and flow of life as a roller coaster ride. The tough times pass, the good times blow through and wind around...and come back again.

I'm always grateful for the simple smiles.

(This was a bit of stamping, a bit of sketching with fine point sharpies, and some paint dabbling with punchinella, stencils and fat brushes. Very relaxing.)

Joy to you!

Remembering that life is a cycle, that it ebbs and flows makes it much easier to live through the hard times and you feel so much more grateful for the good times too. Thanks for the reminder.
