Day 620: Various

Yes, today brought a wide variety a Joyful Moments for me to choose from.

There was volunteering in Sweet P's class today where I worked with a little boy who told me his dad is 10 feet tall.  That is pretty tall.  And then I actually got to work with Sweet P and her reading group.  Just this morning I told her I might not ever get to work with her because I thought I'd only be helping the kids who need a little catching up and Sweet P is in the most advanced reading group (not bragging, honest).  But then I got to work with them anyway!  And that was a Joyful Moment as I saw her sweet happy smiling face over that news.

Then there was a brief, but fun chat with my baby sis.  Joyful Moments, naturally!

An extra snuggly Baby B.  He's actually been this way the past couple days.  Maybe all of the busyness of growing into a toddler is wearing off a bit and he's going to go back to being my cuddle bug?  Don't worry, I won't count on it.  Not too much, anyway.  But it was a lovely, sweet Joyful Moment holding my snuggly boy today.

Getting my essential oils and diffuser in the mail today!  And then breaking it out and diffusing Citrus Bliss all through my kitchen.  My friends gave me some samples that help with depression a while back and I discovered that Citrus Bliss is sort of magical and really does seem to clear up the fog depression creates in my brain.  I wasn't feeling depressed today, but I wanted to try it anyway.  It was a Joyful Moment for me and I inhaled the lovely scent and a Joyful Moment for the boys as they were mesmerized by the blue glow of the diffuser.

And then the kids had their TaeKwonDo Awards Ceremony tonight.  They both passed their tests last week and have advanced to the next levels.  Hooray for my kiddos!  Joyful Moments sharing in their pride.

Wishing you all a wide variety of Joyful Moments!

That is definitely a very joyful day (c: I love the 10ft tall Dad comment...and yay for the kiddos kicking booty and taking names in TaiKwanDo! That is totally awesome!

P.S. I so loved your comment on the scrapbook and name drawings, I remember doing those a lot! (c: Good times and memories...I have the best memories from my senior year and almost all of them include you, my dear! We were a great pair and you were always just the most fun gal pal to be around! And before I forget, the little skeleton hand servers are from Tar-jay, $4.99! They have aluminum versions, too, but they were $11.99...I was too cheap to cough up the dough for those! ha! (c:

I"m glad that listening to me complain was a joyful moment. It definitely brightened my day to talk to someone who really cares. :) Thanks! Oh and...42 days until I see you!!!! :D

Cheryl said...

Aubs--Ditto on all those great memories (and let's just say you're kind about the *ahem* others). I miss you! We need to figure out a way to get together. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE Target! Thanks!

Meg--I didn't feel like you were complaining, really. And it was good to talk. Sorry I had to cut it short! But this has been a week of phone calls and Little M is WAY past DONE with those.
