And it felt like the first day of spring, too! Sunny. Warm. The forsythia is blooming. Delicious smells outside of earth and fresh air. We spent the morning straightening up and opening windows. Then in the afternoon we puttered around outside, raking flower beds, cleaning up wayward leaves. My husband trimmed bushes and the boys helped with the wheelbarrow. The dog romped in the backyard and the boys threw the tennis ball for him. Our cat sunned herself on the back porch and then, to truly celebrate, we grilled chicken and ate at the picnic table. Lovely, joyful, spring day!
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.
