Where is your joy?

My Dad always jokes that my "all time most favorite thing in the whole entire world" changes almost every time I find something new. He's definitely right. I just find it impossibly hard not to get excited about pretty much everything. Joy is EVERYWHERE! Too often I notice there seems to be a great let down when nothing diary-worthy happens on a given day, but let me tell you: your amazing cup of hazelnut coffee with hazelnut creamer and 2 sprinkles of Splenda CAN be the best, most exciting thing ever to happen to you on that very same day. Ain't nothing wrong with lovin' the little things. If we lose sight of the little joys then we will entirely miss the great excitements!

Every night I like to reflect back on the events or moments that truly made this day worth living. Just off the top of my head: my daughter's face when she was riding in the pumpkin wagon. I know a thousand different moments passed today, but that first moment when her daddy put her in the wagon is the one that made the cold, the exhaustion, and the day completely worthwhile.

Where do you find your joy?
