Quote of the Day – Hold Tight to Joy

Growing HOPE Quote of the Day for October 4, 2017

“Hold tight to joy and it will lift you up even when the whole world is coming against you.”

#Quoteoftheday from #GrowingHOPE - Hold Tight to Joy

The day after my mom died, I had people hugging me telling me the pain would catch up to me and I would cry.

They were wrong.

The pain had already hit me. I knew I wouldn’t have a chance to talk to her here on this Earth again. I wouldn’t have a chance to hug her here on this Earth again.

They had seen my smile and heard my laughter and stories and thought I was not dealing with the loss.

But I had joy – and not just because her name was Joy. I had joy knowing where she had gone and that one day when I was no longer on this Earth, I would see her again.

Joy is not a lack of pain. It is a grasp on hope THROUGH the pain.

Hold tight to joy and joy will help see you through.
