Never losing sight of hope will lead us to joyous times ahead.
Without embracing the fear I would feel nothing and I want to feel all the joy I can.
Thinking about Joy under lock down is making me consider the simpler things in life and appreciate things that perhaps I took for granted.
It’s keeping us connected, lifting our spirits and emphasising our common purpose. We are grateful for each other and the love we share.
