It has been hot, hot, hot where I live. Breaking records hot. And as much as I love a cool, refreshing coke, my drink of choice when I'm hot? Sweet tea with extra lemon. And it HAS to have the lemon. If a restaurant doesn't have lemon (and some don't! Can you believe it?) I have them mix my tea with lemonade. But today I didn't have to mix my tea with anything. It was perfect, unadulterated sweet tea. With little cubes of ice and 3 lemon slices swimming in a tall glass. Heaven. Nope. Make that 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.
