I don't always say this. In fact, lately, I've been in a bit of a slump when it comes to making dinner for my family. I'm pretty good at planning. I'm becoming an accomplished cook. But every once in a while, I'm uninspired. I've been that way lately and I decided to push myself out of it. I create a Tilapia recipe with Panko breadcrumbs and a couple veggie sides and hash browns. An OK meal for the spur of the moment. And then, in the middle of dinner, my youngest son says, "This is why I don't like to go out to eat. Mom makes the best stuff at home!" My heart melted. So tonight, my joy was in making a home cooked meal for my family!
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.
