Around the world

Wow -- I just discovered that this blog has a button I can push that makes a map pop up that shows me where in the world people are logging onto this website from -- and I am beyond humbled. I have no idea how people from Germany and South Korea and Canada and Singapore have stumbled upon my little offerings of gratitude and joy, but it makes me happy to think of joy spreading around the world ..maybe someday it could even spark a pandemic of peace. It appears that a joy shared truly is a joy multiplied! The perfectionist in me wishes these posts were a little more profound and polished now that I know people are actually reading them -- but I suppose maybe they are best in their raw form, like carrots and apples. The organic ones that are all lumpy and spotted but taste the best:) Thank you all for reading my ramblings and for joining me for the journey, I wish each and every one of you joy in your lives and I hope you too can find something each day to be grateful for. Tonight I'm grateful for my heating pad and how it can melt my tight and weary muscles after a long day. That makes me think of Charles Schultz's quote that "Happiness is a warm puppy." Yes, warmth is a good thing. And so I'm sending warm wishes to all of you now:)
