We're a little late making vacation plans. To be quite honest, we weren't sure that we were going on a vacation this year. But taking another look at the checkbook, at the savings account, we've decided to splurge on a long 5 day weekend. Good friends of ours are going to share the expenses and we've been hunting and hunting on the internet for a condo on the beach that would take us for 4 nights. Frustrated and ready to give up, I decided to call a company that specializes in beach rentals rather than fill out more forms and send more owners emails. It was so good to speak to someone. Tell them exactly what we needed and see what they could do. And within minutes the voice at the other end of the line had the perfect condo. It wasn't right on the beach, but a 5 minute walk. We can handle that. Lots of space. We can eat in if we want to. Visit with each other after the kids are in bed. It sounds perfect. And having a voice to confirm our reservation? 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.
