Joy in the Journey. Now.

I'm a bad blogger.  No, I'm a blogger that had a less-than-great week. I just let *everything* get to me. I had myself a big ol' pity party. AWOL 'cause  I didn't feel like whining here, and I certainly didn't feel like writing anyway. Do you feel that way, too? Or are you the kind of person that NEEDS to write when you are in a mood?

Joy in the Journey2-2

Well, I'm giving myself a good talking to. I found this wooden plaque (at a grocery store of all places!) late last week, and it was a good reminder to not wait for someday.  Be happy. Be thankful. Find joy in the everyday. Count blessings. No matter what life is right now.

This week, I'm gonna be on the lookout for joy in the journey to remind myself how blessed I am.  Like my teenage daughter bringing me flowers from her walk home every day last week. And that morning light streaming into my kitchen....

Flowers for Mom

There. That's more like it. :-)

I wondered where you had been. I'm sorry it's been "that"kind of week for you. I understand. Wish I had some great words of wisdom. I do know I feel better when I make myself exercise and get that frustration out! Better than eatting myself to more problems. LOL!
