Noticing the joy.

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I realized today that I need to spend more time noticing the joy. Sometimes joy is a big thing like Christmas or a family trip to the coast. Yes I love these kinds of time.

I enjoy the family dinners that are no longer a nightly occurrence because some of my kids have moved out of my home. It is awesome to see them living life but, I miss the days of all of us together.

Today, I realized another joy. It was our turn to clean the church with another family. I was mopping a bathroom floor when my littlest came in and "helped" me squeeze the mop. He then helped me mop the floor with the string mop. it was so fun to see him get excited about the mopping. I love watching them learn. That is a moment of joy.

I was thinking about this and myself. I really need to see they joy in my own learning too. It is so fun to notice the days that I can have joy. They are far more plentiful than I realized.

    Often it is the little things that bring us the most joy. Reflecting on what I have to be thankful for brings much joy into my life.
Your awareness serves you well.
