I didn't have the picture perfect childhood. I have a less than ideal adult relationship with my mother. So Mother's Day card shopping is always pure torture for me. I can't buy the cards that say "you're my best friend," "thanks for all you do," and "there's no love like a mother's love." I don't feel any of that for her. So when I find a card that is obviously a Mother's Day card (because it says Mother on it) and it has a bland, general sentiment like "Hope you have a wonderful day!" I jump up and down for joy. Today was one of those days!
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.
