My boys have soccer camp this week. My oldest son was anxious about it. He typically is about change. And while he's done this particular soccer camp before, he was anticipating not enjoying it this year. He spoke to me about his worries and I told him he was going to have a blast. Today, he came home all excited. Rattling on about how he scored a goal and he learned a new trick and how his team won the first game but not the second. Then he looked at me, flushed with excitement and said, "Mom? Remember when you said I'd have a blast at soccer camp this year? Well, you were right!" Ah, the joys of soccer camp!
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.
