Day 8 – Joy

TODAY’S NUDGE: What do you do to foster joy? What’s your version of ‘flinging glitter in the trenches?”

 

I had to think about this a little bit.  I don’t really have an answer, I don’t think.  I can tell you that our neighbor’s cows bring me joy.  Especially when the new babes are born.

I used to find lots of joy in our chickens, they would come up and let you pet them and would talk to you.  One day they vanished without a trace and I miss them.  But I remember the joy they brought.

Other times when I need to find joy or those glitter moments, I go outside with my camera to see what I can find.  I look for the random flower (or weed), the butterfly, or a dragonfly.  There’s one that likes to sit on the tomato stake outside my window.  20621211_10213535055081083_1957917170258125319_n

I actually asked it to wait so I could get my camera and it did!  That photo is with my tablet, so not the best.

I find joy in the smell of rain and in the light of full moon.  I find joy in rainbows after a good down pour.

Sometimes, I think I have lost my joy and that my glitter bottle is empty.  But then I look at my photos, or I go outside and look around only to find it’s still there waiting for me when I need it most.
