I told myself I wasn't going to repeat things but some days (especially when it comes to my children) I just can't help it. Today (as with many days) I found joy in my son. I've been struggling with a cold and everyone has been sweetly trying to make things a bit better. My youngest is 5 and when he came home from school he told me to go lie on the couch and he would "take care of everything." He brought me his beloved stuffed piggy. He covered me with a blanket. He made sure my tissues and the TV remote were in reach. Then he walked away to go play upstairs and said, "Call me if you need anything!" My youngest brings me joy!
A friend once told me that she tries to find joy in every day. But some weeks it's hard. A whole week without finding joy? That is so sad. I find joy in EVERY day. Or so I think. So I'm testing myself. I am challenging myself to find joy in every single day. Without fail. I will post joy every single day to prove it to myself, to inspire others. Just to see if I can do it. Small bits of joy. Large, monumental moments of joy. But joy is what you will find here.
