Being Joy

We took our young granddaughters

To see Inside Out.

One of the youths of my heart leans over

During the movie

And tells me

“Joy is like you.”

I say

“She is?”

She says

“Yes, she acts like you”

I experience sheer delight.

“And her hair is like yours”.

And my Joy is complete.

    … From the mouths of babes. How sweet, Colleen! I am sooo looking forward to being a grandparent. Not ready for my babies to have babies yet, though. Not sure how that’s going to work yet. Guess I need to see that movie in preparation!

    • Stacey, go ahead and start looking forward to it. I will do NOTHING but help pump you up for this. I thought I was prepared for this kind of love. I mean, I’ve got my own babies, right? No, oh no, there is no way to explain it. 🙂 Joy doesn’t come close to touching it. 🙂

  4. That is so sweet! I love it! And I love your new hair color! 🙂

    Aw, that is so awesome! ( sorry I can overuse that word at times.) Love the hair too, and now I really want to see it. Maybe before summer ends. Sweet, and a sweet moment 🙂

    • 🙂 Thanks Niaaeryn. My hair is only like this for the drawing. I could have been a little more clear, she meant that Joy’s hair is cut like mine but mine is not blue.

        I figured. While still nine a professional work, it I difficult to have blue, lavendar, or even green, hair. Sigh. Maybe one day. Then again, I wonder what the fashion will be. Maybe hair will be all about bows or ribbon or something?

  6. How cool is that? Love the illustration too. You merged your art with that of the movie’s!

    That is the best movie review in the history of movie reviews, MBC. 🙂 And your grand is a sharp one! Joyous. ❤

    • She is sharp MBM. 🙂 I was pretty impressed that a not quite 5 year old and a 7 year old got so much from this movie. Well done movie peeps!

      And she does give a good review. 😉

  8. Oh we’ve been waiting to see that movie, patiently I might add, I think we’re done waiting. I’d better get moving.
    Love the hair color if you were to do it, I would smile with joy.

    Awww! So do you have blue hair now?

  12. ksbeth says:

    what a compliment )

  13. Speaking volumes by way of one simple word!

    I am probably going to wait for this to hit the home options to watch it, but how cool and wonderful. I don’t even know Joy from the movie and I can totally see that. ❤

    Bonus: if I ever "lego-ize" you, I have "Joy hair" I can use 😀

    • I really enjoyed this movie. Enough so I didn’t mind going to it twice. When I normally don’t care to spend time going to a movie once. 😉 And thank you for such a wonderful compliment. And me with blue hair. I have to start seriously considering this. AND the idea I could some day be lego-ized! 🙂

    Aw, what a precious compliment!

  16. Cute Colleen 😀

  17. reocochran says:

    This is very high praise indeed, Colleen! ♡

  18. msampson999 says:

    Aww this awesome! You are like Joy!

    • Awwwww! Thank you Maggie! 🙂 And guess what? Our neighbor’s son was talking to me and he said… “hey I haven’t seen this movie yet but I saw a clip and you remind of the one with blue hair”. I said “Joy?” and he said yes! And he hadn’t read my blog!!! 🙂

  19. Debra says:

    What a precious moment, Colleen! That surely added to your joy–so now you are completely full! 🙂
