Skipping with Joy

Skipping is jumping for joy, step after step. - Terri Guillemets

I'm skipping with joy tonight... for so many reasons.

I'll share four:

-  I got to spend time with my nieces and mom today
-  I'm feeling almost human again
-  Mom's pain has lessened a bit
-  I have part of a GIANT cinnamon roll waiting for me for breakfast tomorrow (thanks, Mom!)

So, tell me, are you skipping for joy?  Over anything?  I'd love to hear.
I'd love to hear if you aren't, too, cuz then I'll say a prayer for you!


  1. stunning photo. so beautiful. glad glad glad you are full of joy.
    i have been full of joy waiting for Saturday to get here, bought tickets to the Civil War Enactment, now i am drinking Imodium and praying it will go away so i can use the tickets.

  2. What a beautiful photograph Stacey, and I am so glad your Mom is doing better.
    Today, I am skipping for joy because the weekend is almost here, and the weather is supposed to be beautiful!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Woohoo. I've been tryin' to the the family to come pick up all the stuff they'd put names on at my MIL's house with loads of naggin' and little luck.

    I have a neice from Tulsa comin' in today to pick up her stuff (lots of big furniture), her sister stuff and some of my BIL and SIL's stuff. Progress!!!

    Son, wife and the Fab Four have already began workin' on the place so we really need it empty.

    'Gotta love progress!!!

    God bless ya sweetei and have a beautiful weekend. Sooooo glad your feelin' better.

    As usual, I'm in awe of that pic! :o)

  4. Sounds like you're in a nice, positive space right now. That makes me smile. So does your beautiful photo. Is it coincidence or your clever design that they stem of the tulip resembles a skipping rope in motion?

  5. What a beauty. I'm skipping for joy because I got to see it and also because you are.

  6. I am so glad you are both getting better, Stacey! I am skipping with joy because of a trip to Richmond tomorrow for some photography!

  7. Pretty picture. Glad to hear that you are skipping for joy. Not much skipping for me today.I am tired and with that a little overwhelmed at all that needs to be done.It will all get done and life will be good.

  8. I'm skipping because I'll see 2/3 of my kids this weekend and spend time with wonderful friends tomorrow! Glad you're skipping, too!

  9. I loved to see your happy post, and a beautiful photo too!

    I am so happy for your heart skipping with joy.
    The warm sunshine today makes me feel that way too.
    Ok, here goes my comment again.

  15. Hi Stacey! I'm skipping with Joy because the Lord has really been "sticking with me" while I dig deeper and try to go. I'm learning so much and am so thankful for the joy we can have even during difficult situations.
