JOY: My Word for the Year 2014

Monday, January 6th, 2014

Others in the blogging world have done this…picking a word for the year.  I thought it might be an interesting exercise and as soon as I thought this, a word popped into my head:  JOY!  I am not predicting my whole year will be filled with joy, but instead I think I want to cultivate joy in my life.  Smiling, laughing and seeing joy around me is what I want to do this year.

I especially want to be more joyful around Dave & John.  A four year old can be trying at times and instead of turning to my old stand-by…anger…I want to at least try to turn things to joy.

So my goal this year to is live it out as joyfully as possible.

Happy New Year

Happy 2014!

Yesterday we had all sorts of great plans.  We got up early so I could make breakfast and then we could attend Mass.  About 3 minutes after we awoke, John got sick and changed our plans for the day.  Instead, we spent almost the entire day hanging out in the living room tending a sick little boy.

John has gotten 4 of these nasty stomach bugs in his four years and each one he’s managed to beat in about 12 hours.  He’s sick as anything for most of the day, then he falls asleep late in the evening for about two hours and awakens chipper and ready to go.  He did the same thing yesterday.  And today he’s eating normally.

God Bless!
