Finding Joy in Everything
Posted July 8, 2011on:
This week has been crazy. Tuesday was spent recovering from traveling to DFW and getting the girls back on a real schedule, cause the one they wanted was not working.
Then I had the chance to show a lot of grace to Hannah has she started having more and more potty accidents.
But, even in the challenging parts, Julia started swimming on her own – which was completely awesome.
And I realized, joy doesn’t mean life will be easy, or flawless, or even fun. Joy simply means that there will be a deep love of life that can’t be fully explained or defined. It will be there when your child pees on the living room floor. It will be there when you are battling bad attitudes at 6 am. It will be there when your child swims to you for the very first time. Joy is life. Joy is allowing struggles to mingle with triumph. Joy is knowing that at the end of the day, love is what matters. Not clean floors. Not perfect children. Just love.
What brought you joy this week?
