What’s your world like? Do you have kids graduating or getting married this summer? Or are they still in the back seat asking, “Are we there yet?”
We got the notice for Zoe’s Kindergarten graduation. I put it to the side. We are so busy! My husband says we should go. He’s almost shocked that I’d consider skipping it. He’s right. I’m a crazy lady with a checklist and a schedule.
Do you have days where your joy is missing? Think about how hard we work every day just to make life go forward. Does it hurt your joy when you stop celebrating the small stuff? Jesus said we were supposed to receive the kingdom of God like a little child.
What is it for you? Maybe this summer it’s just enjoying sitting in a square of sunshine, grilling a great burger, buying coffee for a coworker. Don’t let the practical knock out the little moments.
“Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and find they were the big things.”
P.S. Loved this conversation today on The Modern Motherhood Podcast at AllMomDoes with Candace Payne. She is the Chewbacca Mom and it’s all about joy! You’ll want to take a listen.
