My oldest son came to me while I was on the computer tonight, about a half an hour before his bedtime and asked, "Mom? If I get ready for bed now, can we read together?" My heart melted. He knew what my answer would be. I can never turn down an opportunity to read. He hurried through his nightly routine, we grabbed a bunch of old books (books I thought he'd feel too old for - but he chose them, wanting to reminisce, I guess) and we snuggled and cuddled and read until he was too sleepy. Pure and simple read aloud 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.
