After a long day. After a memorial service for my brother-in-law. After a Michigan State stomping of U of M. After a houseful and a yardful of friends and family. The four of us sisters, finally sat down around the dining room table. The youngest of us asked, "Have you ever played Apples to Apples?" Two of us hadn't. After a quick review of the rules, we played. And we played. And we laughed. And we argued. And we played and laughed some more. Truly the highlight of my day. It was great to end it with a little 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.
