There is such joy and freedom once you learn to ride a bike. The boys both received their first "two wheelers" this weekend. The birthday boy got to pick out a brand new bike. His brother, just 10 months younger, choose one at a yard sale (since it wasn't his birthday.) They practiced all weekend and now, the first thing they wanted to do after school was practice some more. As I worry about spills and falls, I'm trying to find the joy. But when I remember the fun and freedom I had once I learned? There IS joy in learning to ride a bike.
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.
