I chaperoned a field trip to the zoo today. We used to be members and we went all the time. It was the very first outing I took with my two babies when they were 3 months and 13 months old. It was the very first place I nursed my 3 month old in public. I remember the very bench I was sitting on, watching the monkeys while my 13 mo. old nibbled crackers in his stroller. It was a trip down memory lane today and our city zoo is lovely. Shaded, full of wonderful animals. Zoo memories = 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.
