My Word for 2013 - JOY

Wednesday, January 02, 2013


I am taking the JOYDARE and naming 1000 Gifts in 2013. From Ann VosKamps book on 1000 gifts.

My name, Gail, means Source of Joy and it has always been my desire to be a source of joy for others, but I struggle feeling joy myself. Ann's book, which I just got and haven't even read yet, is about finding joy in our everyday lives. I resolve to be thankful every day, to find joy in my every day life and to become someone who is full of so much joy that I can be a source of Joy to others!

The Full JoyDare can be found here:

I am using an Evernote Journal on my iPad to record so I won't necessarily be recording it here. I will also post on Twitter #1000GIFTS along with others posting their gifts.

January 1st JoyDare - 3 Gifts Heard
- heard my daughter playing the piano with joy and abandon
- we had a 6 hour power outage during the night. I was awake on and off during the night, as was my husband and 2 of my kids. It was weird that the dark and absolute silence woke us up?? But we have a lot of electronics in our household - house of geeks - and the silence in the night was a pure joy.
- seeing the Hobbit at the theatre in full surround sound was a joy yesterday.

    Sounds as if your house is like ours, Christmas lights all year. Isn't technology wonderful.
