Especially on a cold day I love to make a big pot of chili. My family loves my recipe and we like to serve it over a big helping of mashed potatoes. I love making it. It's therapeutic somehow. I know the recipe by heart. It's best made early in the day so it can simmer a long, long time. And then the leftovers? Yum! Today I made a big pot of chili. And it was the perfect cold, wet, rainy day for it. A little bit of beans, a little bit of cheese and a little bit of joy in a bowl of spicy chili.
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.
