Don't get me wrong, I love to cook. But sometimes the schedule is crazy, or I'm out of ideas or energy or time. Tonight I had a pool committee meeting for our neighborhood. On a Friday. But it was an emergency meeting, pertinent issues to discuss. So I called my husband and he suggested we just pick up subs, eat them at the pool, let the boys play for awhile and then I'd scoot off to my meeting. How easy is that? Usually I'm all about the joy of cooking. But tonight? There was joy in not having to cook!
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.
