"Joy" : "delight", "great pleasure", "jubilation", or "happiness".
One of the faces I look at when I need a reminder.
The eyes that I smile into when I need a strong dose of the joy that now resides within this tiny two-year-olds heart.
The ever-present-in-her-mouth thumb that I grab as she falls into my lap to make me laugh right when I want to cry.
The giggle that leaves me unable to to resist the joy that wells deep inside of me when I tickle her until she almost can't breathe.
My little Joy.
Isaiah 55:12 "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands."
You truly are joy in my life, little girl.
You bring joy, laughter and smiles into my life each day of yours.
You do go out with joy and are led forth with peace...
may it continue for the rest of your days, my little Joy.
