Arthur is on PBS just before we leave for school. It's on right at the time that I'm rushing around to get ready. You see, I'm like most moms. I wake up, tend to everyone else and then remember to take care of myself. In those few 15 minutes I shovel down a bowl of Raisin Bran, take a quick shower, dry my hair and throw it in a quick ponytail and jump into some clothes. The kids are ready. They're fed, dressed, teeth are brushed. I've already made their lunches. So they watch a quick episode of Arthur so I can get ready. Today was crazy with the time change - so today, Arthur brought me a few minutes of peace and joy!
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.
