Trying for Joy is a blog, but hopefully also the beginning of a community of individuals that truly care about one another. It's not a place to complain about what is happening in our lives, although we do that sometimes too. It's a place where we can commiserate, and then talk about the funny, happy and joyful parts of our lives, that are happening at the same time. It's a community of individuals fiercely protecting our own well being, even while caring for someone else.
