Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Weekly photo challenge: Joy


The WordPress photo challenge this week is  Joy.  I’ve thought about this; looked around, searched for that one image that expressed joy around here.  In the end it was obvious.

Hey there Katie girl.  You express joy every day.  Thanks for being you!

Stop by the link above and check out a few other expressions of joy.  Here and here and here are a few of my favorites.  And of course stop by Robin’s blog where she shares beautiful images of joy in her part of the world.

Enjoy.  And look around…what do you see that is joyful?

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  10. We have a lot in common, Dawn — the joy our dogs feel and the joy they give us. On my photo blog, I have two images of Sarah that express this: July and December. Can’t decide which is more joyful, but Sarah on the beach is a favorite of mine. This picture of Katie with her paws sailing through the air is great!
