Well, not exactly. But my husband was away. So the kids and I played. We went to a movie. Ate a kid friendly meal of tacos and chips and carrot sticks. Then, after their bath, we crawled into bed and read and read and read. They dozed softly and I snuck downstairs. I could watch whatever I wanted to on television. Play word games on the computer for as long as I wanted to. Stretch out in the bed, take up as much space as I could without snoring waking me up. I love my husband. But there is joy in a night away.
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.
