These pictures have something in common besides being pictures of cats.
To me they express three aspects of joy: elation, contentment, and poignancy.
When things are going our way and everything is good in our world.
We are giddy with joy.
We smile and laugh and feel happy.
There are times when troubles and difficulties are few and we feel good.
We rest in quiet joy.
Confident and relaxed.
Then there are times when sadness and sorrow come to us.
And still there is joy.
Deep within we know all is well.
Some people do not know joy.
My heart breaks for them.
Two Shoes Tuesday, prompts this week awaken or joy.
