You're up before dawn on a Saturday when the doorbell rings. You haven't brewed your coffee so you wonder if you imagined the sound. Plonking the half-filled carafe in the sink, you go to the front door and cautiously swing it open. No one there. As you cast your eyes to the ground, you see a parcel addressed to you ... from you.
You scoop it up and haul it inside, sensing something legitimate despite the extreme oddness of the situation. Carefully, you pry it open. Inside is a shoebox -- sent from ten years in the future -- and it's filled with items you have sent yourself.
Here's what happens on that Saturday morning:
I open the shoebox. I see a post-it note with a smiley face on it. Obviously, in the future I’m still a fan of notes to myself. It’s adhered to to some strange item that’s flat glass with a silver backing. It looks like a mirror, yet it’s lighter than one. In my gut I know it’s some type of gadget. I inspect the front and back until I find a lone button on the side. After I turn it on, it lights up, with a golden screen that transitions to something else.
It’s an ereader from the future. On the surface I see a list of all my novels that will be published…some of them I recognize as current drafts or ideas floating in my head, while others look new to me, and of course there’s BESTEST. RAMADAN. EVER. The variety of colorful covers and fonts gives me goose bumps. All that writing—the blood, sweat, and tears of the journey—has paid off and I’m a multi-published author. I tap on the screen to open the first book. Ahh…how do I work this thing?

All you have to do to be a part of this happy hop is sign up on the Linky List, and on March 1st, post your list of joy - with a minimum of five things that put a spring back in your step!
Here's my list:
Books – You know I love them.
Writing – It’s what I do.
Water – I gravitate to oceans, lakes, and rivers wherever I am. They inspire me. I like to walk alongside them and think.
Full Moons – No, I’m not a werewolf, but I think they’re beautiful.
Animals – What’s not to love about fur babies? I need to have animals in my life.
What makes you joyful?
