Saying you have a teenage daughter in the house is kind of misleading. I mean, she may, technically, live here. But she's rarely home. And when she is? She's holed up in her room. Or entertaining friends in the TV room. So a day when I can knock on her door and say, "Hey, you wanna go see a movie with me?" and she's says "Sure!"? Pure 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.
