40 Days of Joy

Anniversary & Announcement

I’ve been toying with an idea and decided that today, the 14th anniversary of Joe’s passing, would be a good day to make my decision public:

40 Days of Joy will return this year starting on 22 November and ending on 31 December.

“Joy To You and Me”

For those of you new here, 40 Days of Joy was a series I ran for a few years where I shared, recipes, thoughts, scripture, and gift ideas that might bring a little ray of joy during a chaotic time of year. It is basically Weekend Wisdom on steroids.

I will be working on new projects for this year’s version and may drop some hints throughout the year.

A project like this is what Joe would want me to work on, especially during these unsettled times.

May you have a blessed day filled with lots of joy.
