Today was full of detours. For some reason or another, plan A was not to be and a plan B had to be found. My son couldn't find his favorite pair of tennis shoes - plan B - wear the slip-on pair. My daughter couldn't do her chosen topic for her research paper - plan B - the teacher's suggestion, which she confided that she liked better. And then tonight, I thought my plan for dinner was a shoe in - but it was still frozen and would taste terrible if we microwaved it. My daughter exclaimed, "Plan B! Let's do Chinese take-out!" A joyful idea! Boy, I love Plan B!
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.
