Continuing with what I started yesterday, here are a few of my joys today:
People who smile. Not just smile on their face, but smile with their attitude. It’s so hard to find people like that! Today I ran across a few well timed genuinely smiling people and it made all of the difference.
I made spicy pulled pork today for my coworkers as a holiday treat today. Ahh… joy. Isn’t food wonderful?
This guy! He is SUCH a joy! He was gone last night and came home today and just seeing him when I walked in the door made my whole day all better! (that’s Frank, by the way – he’s doing something very serious… I like when he’s doing serious things because then I can distract him… he loves when I distract him while he’s intently working on something… )
Yeah, yeah – I know. I’m a consultant. I’m supposed to love this stuff. But I have to say, about three years ago I dreaded the winter because I had dry patches of skin along my nose, my eyebrows and the side of my face. I washed my face, I tried to moisturize, but to no avail. I switched to Mary Kay and I haven’t had this problem since! I love that I don’t worry about my face any more – it gives me lots more time to worry about other things… ahhh… joy!
This is our theme for our nursery – lambs! (disregard the already embroidered name on the quilt – it’s not even close to any of the baby names we’re considering) It makes me smile because lambs are such sweet looking animals and totally gender neutral. Although, I’m sure I’ll find out that lambs are really very unfriendly beasts that attack small domesticated animals. But whatever. They make me happy and bring me joy. Yay for lambs!
