4 Things that Sparked Joy

Check out what sparked joy in my life this week as I make a journey for joy this year.

This year I am on a journey for joy. You can read more about how this journey got started here.

Lacking joy? I’d love for you to join me on the journey for joy?

So, what sparked joy for me this week?

  1. Girl Day! My boys needed to be at their homeschool co-op for the entire school day on Friday. That had never happened before. So it was just me and Little Lady for the entire day. It was super nice to spend the whole together. She liked it too, although she did keep asking when would the boys be done and when could we go pick them up. She seemed lost without them and missed them so much. When they were finally home, she just wanted snuggle and follow them both around the entire night. It was super cute. We spent out morning watching Inside Out – which may just be her favorite movie – and then we went to lunch and off for some shoe shopping. #allgirlythings
  2. Soulwinning as a family! We also went with another family from our church. We don’t usually get to attend our church’s big soulwinning pushes due to my husband’s crazy schedule but the stars aligned this month and we were able to attend. It’s an all afternoon event. We eat lunch together as a church family and then split off into groups and go out handing out tracks to different areas. It was a cold, drizzly day but the boys had a blast with their rain boots splashing in puddles and running from house to house. It was a great day teaching our kids about sharing the gospel with the lost. How could that not spark joy? It was hard to get there knowning it was going to be cold and rainy but while we out it was a great time with minimal rain!. Praise the Lord!
  3. Chocolate Hazelnut {decaf} Tea. As I search for a tea that hits that spot that coffee held, I am excited over anything that tastes delicious. This tea sure hits the spot and is the closest thing to coffee in the tea world that I can find. Decaf tea world that is. It’s not been easy! I’m loving this one! Check it out!
  4. Trim Healthy Mama! Now my #3 might not jive with my #4 and that makes me sad. But I’m still going to enjoy that tea while I can. I’m sure it has some sugar in it which is a BIG no no on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I started the 21 Day Fix. Well, wouldn’t you know I lost no weight on that plan? Not a pound. Not an inch. How on earth does that even happen? I was so frustrated by it, let me tell you. So after quite a few people mentioned THM I decided to take the plunge and order the book and the cookbook. I’m still in the reading and learning phase but trying to implement this new way of eating as best I can until I get the hang of it. I’m really hoping this is what I need to lose weight. Can’t a girl lose 5 pounds?? It shouldn’t be so hard! #passmeadonut
