I hate it when my kids are sick. And to tell the truth, I'm not a very good nurse. I'm too busy being worried about what it "could" be that I get almost as cranky as they are. I have to physically stop myself, calm myself down and remind myself that it's just a cold. Colds are good. They challenge our immune system to do its job. My youngest is sick today. And he's the cuddliest of my children. We played checkers, we snuggled and read together. And cuddled for naps. Today my little boy was sick. But I was able to stop. Be calm. And find joy in his snuggles.
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.
