I’m deliberately finding joy for forty days. To start from day one click here.
I fought joy yesterday.
It tried to come in but I would bat it away with a whine.
I want to do/be/have something else.
This morning I walked into our office and saw this on my husband’s desk…
Three little words: I feel Joy
My husband is not what you’d call a “feeler.” We joke often about how he hardly ever uses that word. He says “think.” I say “feel.”
Curious, I called him.
“You wrote ‘I feel joy’ on an envelope in your office.”
Together we figured out he had written it in the middle of the night, half-asleep, not even remembering the moment he did so.
I hung up the phone, a smile spreading across my face.
I tried to keep joy out but it found a way. In the crack between waking and sleeping it slipped into our home through the hand of my husband.
I fought joy yesterday and it won.
I’m so happy that it did.
