I've had a rough night. I got accosted at my son's baseball game by a neighbor who wants to work around a rule at our neighborhood pool. I'm on the pool committee and she was relentlessly trying to convince me to let her bend the rules for her. She had lots of reasons why I should. And in the process, I missed one son's play at home plate and my other son's triple. It was a double header and by the second game I was so sick of listening to her I hid behind the dugout and watched the remainder of the game through two chain link fences. I came home. Took a long shower and sat down to the wonderful comfort snack of Oreos and a tall glass of milk. A little joy at the end of a long night!
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.
