I don't let my kids have soda very often. Especially Coke. I am well aware of it's addictive qualities, believe me. But every once in a while - you gotta have a treat, right? Coke float to the rescue! Today, after school, I took the kids to Sonic for a treat. My middle son asked if he could have a Coke float. Hmmmm, that sounds pretty tasty, I thought. OK, I said. His face lit up. Joy in getting a Coke float and seeing the joy in my son's face. Priceless!
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.
