HEART BALLOON COOKIES/ Joy



Throughout the course of our lives, there are people who touch us each and every day in our journey called life. Family . . . parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, aunts, uncles and cousins; many of whom we know all our lives. There are others too like friends, teachers, coaches and mentors, some who may enter our lives for brief periods. At times we may even take them for granted, as well as the bonds we form and the emotional attachments to such individuals. These remarkable persons make an indelible impression on us and in turn, we impact their lives too.

Occasionally, stop and take a moment to reflect and appreciate those we love still in our world who brighten our days, and those with whom we have only memories and eternal love in our hearts.

As I write this, I’m thinking of an amazing and beautiful lady who became my aunt and dear friend. She was one of my favorite persons in the world. She was compassionate, empathetic, thoughtful and generous of self, with a laugh that would light up a room. Those who knew her and loved her …. her family, friends and students … were showered with her love, friendship and goodness. I believe we are all better persons for having had Joy in our lives. Sending balloons to heaven …
