I adore my children. You know that. But after 18 days straight with them underfoot. With me being their sole entertainer, chef and maid? I'm tired. There is so much more work around the house when the kids are home creating little messes. And today, they are safely tucked away at school. I just finished picking up, all the machines are humming along and the dog is walked. It's just me, a cup of tea and my new cookbook to thumb through. For moms, there is joy when the kids go back to school.
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.
