I work on a dinosaur of a computer. My daughter has her own laptop. My husband has his laptop. The boys and I share the dinosaur. It freezes. It can't run certain programs. It's painfully slow. Money is tight but my husband has promised me a laptop. And every chance he gets, every time he has a little saved up he picks up a Best Buy gift card. Today he came home with one for $50 even though he just gave me one last weekend for Valentine's Day. Just because, he said. Such joy in a simple gift card.
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.
