My joy had come to me today before I ever got out of bed. It was in the form of a text saying my daughter’s school was delayed two hours, followed by another saying my classes I was to teach would be cancelled, and finally one saying my daughter’s school was closed. ❄️🌨💨😊 I needed some extra sleep and an extra day to do some chores (like still putting away my Christmas decorations 😩). I still have half of them to put away, but I made a dent in it, and I made homemade soup 🍜; I put my clean laundry away and got the trash out to the curb.
Sometimes , it’s the simplest things, like the gift of more time to do chores and getting a little more rest, that can bring me joy.
