Joy on the face of my little girl and she runs through water is something I will cherish forever. I remember the days when I longed for summer to finally arrive and when it finally did I jumped in at full speed ( the pool that is). The seasons seem to pass by faster and with less anticipation these days. That is until I see Olivia’s smile and hear her laugh and I remember that JOY in life is found in the small things and that in order to have it you have to choose to the joyful. Life is hard sometimes and being happy about every aspect of my life can be difficult. However, it is during these hard times that I need to remember that God is growing me to be more like his Son and that alone should make me leap for joy.
