Small Bits Of Joy This Week


Every day I am in search of the small things that bring joy into my life and those that are around me. This week has been no different, Rico and I intentionally did things that were less costly to our large family. It is hard sometimes but we make it work somehow.

  • My family and I  always go out for movie nights. But this time we decided to get the kiddos up and out of the house for a different type of adventure. It was so funny to see how the smaller kids reacted. Because they have never been in a video store until that day. Yep, we went old school on them by pulling up to our local neighborhood video store. Surprisingly it bought back memories of going through all those forgotten flicks as a child. Nonetheless, our visit turned out to be a lot of fun.  The best was we only spent less than 10 dollars for 4 gently used movies. We got Peter Rabbit, How To Eat Fried Worms, The American Assassin, and Death Wish. In which all of them were amazing, but I only made it through two that night.

The best part of our trip was the family bonding. We spent one hour walking around and making fun of the good ole' days. After that night my kids expressed wanting to get weekly movies. When we got home, Rico ordered pizza and sodas for the night. We never made it to the popcorn because everyone was full and sleepy by midnight. Out of all the movies watch Peter Rabit was so funny, and those rabbits were just little plum baddies. It was so cute. 

I know getting ice-cream is not always joyful to most. But it is when it brings the whole family together. We don't get to do it often. But this week I set aside a little money to splurge with the girls. It's a joyous moment when the smaller kids can order whatever they want. Although we can never talk while eating because it melts so fast. It is refreshing to listen to the smacking and chatter the girls made while licking their sticky fingers.

Who knew getting a coffee cup would bring me such joy. It is something about drinking your hot beverage out of a cute cup very satisfying. I know I have a fetish with weird and abstract cups. But I can't help it, a new cup makes me happy, and it is the simple things that can bring me a handful of joy.

This week my client gave me free tickets to see Hotel Transylvania. And it was the best gift. It came from a sweet person. Its funny everyone I know knows we love hanging out as a family watching a good movie. But to my surprise, it was for Moriah, my six-year-old daughter. We just happened to get blessed with a few tickets. Ha, not that is something to be joyful about.

Yall it been hotter than fish grease frying in the Louisiana Bayou. This Texas heat has me always looking for something to set the calm tone. One thing that has cooled me down giving me joy is The Watermelon Freeze from Taco Bell. Now hear me out this drink only made a list for one reason. When I leave work before heading home, I will pull over and grab two soft tacos and no lettuce with this drink. I turn my phone off and sit in my truck all by myself and unwind. I know that sounds crazy, but that is my relax time before heading home. So who knew a cold drink with sweet and sour seeds in it would bring twenty minutes of joy.

My week has been filled with so many beautiful things, I only wanted to share the small everyday stuff with you guys. Learning to be intentional in life has become the primary goal in our home. Finding the little things in our daily life is what keep the happiness flowing. It is never about gifts or doing things. I believe it is about finding the joy in everyday life. Yep, and that is all the true meaning to being joyful.

What brings you and your family joy?

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
