1000 Moments of Joy

Motherhood is no easy task, it requires patience, the purest form of love (also called charity), nursing skills, coaching skills, herding skills, compassion, and my list could go on and on. A friend of mine is following in the footsteps of her BFF in looking for the "moments of joy" in motherhood. In the next year, until Mother's Day comes around again, they are going to look for 1000 moments of joy. I really like the idea of looking for the joy in motherhood over dwelling on the moments of frustration…so I too will be jumping on the bandwagon.

With my husband gone for the next 14 months, I need to look for the positive in all things…….

  1. My daughter is every bit her father's daughter; she DOES NOT like to smile for the camera. When she does smile for the camera, you can see the pure joy that radiates from deep within her soul.

      2. Every bit the princess…even when running a fever and not feeling well.

  3.  Even when she does not feel well, she is a little hurricane….I do not mind the mess made by a happy child.

So, what are your 1000 moments of joy? Should you take this project on, please let me know because I sure would love to read all about your joy…and be sure to let Amy and Kim share in your joy as well.
