The Joy Of Water In The Creek Again

                                                 The Joy Of Creating

                  The Joy Of Swimming In November

                               And Sister Huddle In Warming Sun

The Joy Of Seeing My Grandmother In Her Face

After Emily had "prettied up" Mary Margaret, Mary Margaret said, "I'll have to do this when it's time to go look for a husband!"

The joy of feeling good about yourself and who you are and how you look and knowing you WANT a picture of yourself.
 The mother's joy of knowing that it is not vanity, but self-confidence, and she's so glad her daughters  are joy-filled, beautiful, inside and out
