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?
- We bought a house! This is huge for us! We have been renters for the last 8 years and have 6 moves total. We have moved every year for awhile now and it is so draining, expensive and damaging to our belongings. We were so ready. We have tried to buy a couple houses in the past but they always fall through for one reason or another and then once we started the pharmacy we no longer qualified for a mortgage for 3 years. It was a big blow to know we had to rent for an undetermined amount of time. But God provided a way and through some really random events here we are in our dream home 8 weeks later. I would never have imagined it! I can’t wait to tell the full story. Owning a home feels much different. I can’t wait to never move again! This is our forever home and it feels so good!
- A garage! Such a minor detail but one that is big for me! Our last home didn’t have a garage and I missed it every single day of the year. I could not wait to get a garage again and now I have one! A super clean one too!
- A master bathroom! When you go from having a master bath to one main bath it can be quite the shocker. I love that our new house has a master bath for us. It’s so nice since we have the kids showering every night.
- Neighbors. It’s so strange to live in a neighborhood. The people in this neighborhood are so nice! They are close knit and so friendly. Neighbors can either be a blessing or a curse and so far it looks like we got some good ones! The street is so quiet. It’s pretty perfect! My cup runneth over!
