Hearing my husband type in the wee hours of the night.
My little girl cuddling with me and touching my face when she’s sleepy.
Waking up in the middle of the night to my husband getting home from work (yes, he has odd hours. :( )
Waking up in the morning to baby girl babbling.
Answering the phone and hearing my dad say he just wanted to call and chat.
Receiving a new manuscript to edit.
Getting a package in the mail from my mom with new knit items, just because.
Hearing the ding for a text message and seeing that it’s from one of my siblings.
Opening the dishwasher to find that that my husband already emptied it.
Sometimes I’m tempted to take these things for granted, but I’m glad I realize how these “little” things make my life all the more meaningful. I know what a treasure it is to have been born into a family that loves me and is very close. I am so lucky to have a man who loves me unconditionally and shows it selflessly each and every day. I am so happy I get to raise the precious girl I get to call my own, and I am very fortunate to get to do something I love. I am pretty sure I am the most blessed woman in the world. Shame on me if I’m not the most joyful!
What brings you joy?
