Daily Draw: Celtic Book of the Dead ~ Island of Joy
I was long into adulthood when I realized the difference between happy and joy. Joy stays, happy goes.
I'm reminded by this card regardless of circumstances to recognize and appreciate the inner joy. Disregarding it is disrespectful of all my life experiences which make me what I am today. Inner joy gives me the courage to go on when I'd rather not.
"Joy is not in things; it is in us." ~ Richard Wagner 1813-1883
