Hello My Dear,
My name is Joii Cooper. It’s pronounced “Joy” but it’s spelled J-O-I-I. My dad is the culprit. He decided on the spelling and to be honest…I LOVE it! It’s uniquely me.
I am a my husband’s Wife, my parents’ Daughter, my brother’s Sister and your Friend!
Here are a few things to know about me:
Jesus is my reason!
Hubby is my motivator!
You and I are my team.
I am the curator of a life filled with Comfort and Joii.
I welcome you to this space to chat, exchange ideas and most importantly to delight in things that brighten our days. It has become clear, over the years, that I thrive from a life filled with joy and peace. I remember being away at grad school. I invited my father and step-mother to my house for a July 4th dinner. I made a lovely meal that included baked salmon and a spinach and strawberry salad. The next day, I got the most precious email from my step-mother. I used to call her “Hammy” because her maiden name was Ham. This is what she wrote:
“You are the slendiferous hostess with the mostess. Thank you for your outstanding hospitality. You do very well in that area. You are a wonderful person and don’t you forget it.
I love you,
I have saved this email since 2007 and I’m happy I did. Hammy passed away in 2008. I guess she knew, I’d be right here today, hosting you in this space called, “Comfort and Joii”.
Through the years, I’ve had people express similar sentiments. Well, I think they might be on to something. I think they might be right. I think I’ve discovered a happy place. I’d like to assist you in #bringingyourhappyback.
Peace and joy is here for us! Let us live it. Let us enjoy it. And please, let us spread it.
So join me, your hostess with the mostess and welcome to Comfort and Joii.
