Five minutes, that's all. Five minutes of writing, unencumbered; no worries, just words. Come on...you can do it!
What brings you joy? There are so many moments in our lives that qualify as joyous.
That first moment of looking into his eyes and realizing he is the ONE and making that walk down the aisle into his arms to spend the rest of your life with him, that's joy (and maybe a bit of fear, too!).
The pink line on the test, the doctor's confirmation, "it's time", the first smile, first giggle, first steps, first words...all of those bring joy.
Joy also makes an appearance, sometimes with subtlety and sometimes with ear-to-ear grins, on the faces of grandparents when you present them with that first grandchild.
Mortar-board caps, flowing gowns, tassel-switching and diploma after years of schooling and hope of what the future will bring, brings both joy and mistiness to mama-hearts (and don't say that I told you, but to daddy-hearts, too. Shh!)
There's joy in the beginning and joy at the end, looking back at all the moments, realizing how full your life has been and it only gets better from here.
Share your joys with me in the comments section. I would love to know what puts that smile on your heart!
