My two oldest children are in school. My youngest doesn't start until next week. Secretly, I was dreading having to entertain and get chores done with a little shadow around. I love my kids. I truly, truly do. But I treasure the time I have to get things done alone. And I've been pleasantly surprised. So surprised and so enjoying the company, I'm going to miss the little guy next week. Today he was a little chatterbox in the back seat, entertaining me on our long drive to my husband's office. Then, at home, he was helpful and eager as I tackled my chores. Today, and for the past week, it's been a true joy having company.
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.
