#JusJoJan ~ 1/17/22

Thanks Linda for hosting and thanks indieshe for the prompt suggestion.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 17th, 2022, is “joy.” Use the word “joy” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Jubilant spirit

Outpouring of love

Yielding to fate

I mentioned the other day that a coping mechanism of mine is “pretend joy”. Forced joy might be a better explanation. Nothing bad can happen to you if you’re joyful. Come to find out the bad stuff still gets in but by being full of joy, somehow you notice the pain less. You get a semblance of control back. With everything going on with MoMo, we’ve had to grin and bear it a lil more than usual. This too shall pass!!

As always, more to come.

We’re looking for care for my mother-in-law which isn’t for the faint of heart. There is no plan since this change in circumstance is unexpected. Day by day, minute by minute.
