A Joyful Reminder

JOY: 1: the emotion evoked by well-being, success or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires; 2: a state of happiness or felicity; 3: a source or cause of delight.

Whatever the word means to you, it’s a simple feeling that can seem so elusive some days.  I decided to put a little reminder to myself to seek JOY in every possible moment in a place I find myself most of the day: at the kitchen sink:

I had these little wood pieces that I bought at Michael’s for $.99 right before the holidays.  I planned on making gift wrapped ornaments out of them for the Christmas tree, but I never got around to it.

I cut out some of the chalkboard vinyl left over from our Winter Mantel, adhered it to the wood rectangle and propped it inside one of our antique doorknob photo holders.

I put it on our glass window shelf above our kitchen sink.  I spend most of my day there, so I’ll never be able to miss this little reminder that could have a large impact on each moment of my day!

May you find joy today in whatever you do, wherever you are!

    When everyone was picking out a WORD for the year, I chose JOY. Finding joy in everything, large or small. So far, so good! Looks like we are thinking alike! :-)
