JOY by @KristalSmile

JOY means very different things to different people so when I was asked to create a playlist on the subject I spent some time thinking about what JOY means to me.

JOY for me falls into these categories:

1. Love – because it really is something if you give it away

2. Friendship – because I have been blessed with some amazing friends and we have had a right laugh to some of these tunes

3. Dancing it out – just dance for no good reason at all “Rip it up to shreds and let it go!”

4. Simplicity – stopping to smell the roses once in a while does us all good! “Happiness was just outside my window”

5. Good memories – cherish the memory of those who have brought JOY into your life and to the lives of others. The last track on the playlist is “Half the World Away” a special song for so many reasons dedicated to a friend who brought so much JOY in the world but was sadly lost 2 years ago in April – gone but never forgotten. Tom’s version can be found here

Hope you all enjoy –  and remember the JOY in your own life.
