Joy Pockets

What a spirit boost when I read Mon's joy pockets over at Holistic Mama. After taking 42 deep breaths today with my boys' testing my patience, I really needed to dig deep and find some joy pockets in my life to give me the right perspective as Sunday approaches.

My Joy Pockets Today

sneaking into my bedroom to listen to my tunes
stretching my arms out to feel the warm breeze
prayer bringing me back to center
fleshing out an idea for a book on the screen
joking again with my boys
having a poem open up something
a surprise meeting with a friend
repeating a French phrase or two
chocolate next to me as I type
taking those 42 deep breaths

Beautiful joy pockets :)! I especially like the French phrases (hubs is French), the chocolate, and the warm breeze ;). Have a beautiful Sunday!

Great joy pockets; we all need them, it is time out for us to regain our focus to forge ahead! We all need to participate, in finding joy filled moments. (reminds me of that song, "I've got a pocketful of sunshine" ;-D

There are a lot of tests, daily! YOU are wise, to do this~

I just love the phrase joy pockets! Kel, I am constantly praying to get centred. I can't live without it! And the chocolate right beside you? It's like a warm blanket. I am heading over to your friend's site. Anyone condoning deep breathing is my kind of person!

Ahh - I am soaking up the warm breeze with you. It's been so cold and rainy here for so long I think I might be building an arc soon.

Maybe Miss Jillian can get those boys in line for you!

I love that you are fleshing out a book on screen. I decided to start writing our family history. It will be a lot of work but I really want my kids to be able to read it someday.

Ahh, joy pockets, love this idea. Have you read 1,000 gifts? Your joy pockets would work so well for this, you've obviously got a knack :) So glad 42 deep breaths works, I'll have to remember that one! Hugs to you!!

I have 2 boys, who are always test my patience. I second on "chocolate next to me as I type", and "taking those 42 deep breaths"... and big sigh!
