Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.  ~Melba Colgrove

I don’t want to be happy. I want to live life with joy.

Happiness is hearing a favorite song on the radio on the way to work.
Joy is rolling down the car windows and singing along. Loudly. Even if off key.

Happiness is waking up to see a beautiful sunny day.
Joy is feeling that warmth on your face after a long gray winter.

Happiness is being in the stands to see the big game.
Joy is grabbing pom-poms and cheering from the sidelines when your team scores.

I want to live life with joy.
