31 Days of Joy in Motherhood – Day 1
After endless indecision, I finally committed – 31 Days of Joy in Motherhood. It’s one long series, but I promise you it won’t be boring.
I don’t have a single post written, but I know where I’m going. I LIKE where this is going.
I am so stinking excited about it I can’t stand it! I seriously want to chug a gallon of coffee and stay up all night writing.
This is going to be so cool.
(excuse me while I geek out.)
Because I’m committed to continuing my regular features (My Kids Make Me Laugh, Thankful Thoughts, and Five Minute Fridays) there may be some days I post more than once. (I also have a killer pumpkin recipe or two that I just HAVE to share.)
I may not be able to actually fit it all in, there may be some bonus content in my weekly newsletter.
(I also have a post on my husband’s engineering disease that I can’t wait to share! It’s a dishwasher battle royale. Giggle.)
By the end of the month, I want our hearts to be so full of JOY that there is no room to feel worn out or weary!
How cool would that be?
So why 31 Days of Joy in Motherhood?
Because motherhood matters. We shape the lives of children and provide a life-long influence in their lives. What we do today has the potential to impact our world long after our children are grown. Our joy gives them wings.
Because motherhood is exhausting. It’s the hardest job in the world, and it rarely gets the recognition that it deserves. It’s easy to become weary, worn out, burned out, used up, disillusioned, isolated, and just plain frustrated. Joy is the antidote to that.
Because Joy in Motherhood is my passion. I know what life is like when momma’s not happy. I know how my own family suffers when I simply go through the motions. I know how different things are in my home when I’m joyful and happy. My joy makes life better.
Joy and Happiness in motherhood are so important to me that I started a blog about it.
How can we find Joy in Motherhood in 31 Days?
- Motherhood has value. I want us to celebrate that in some fun and unusual ways.
- Our children are treasures. Delighting in them is a powerful experience.
- Hope, purpose, and planning all play a role. Those sound big and boring, but they don’t have to be!
- One word: Felicity. Go ahead and giggle if you want to.
- Laughter, thankfulness, and play. Sisterhood, community, and giggles.
Sound like fun? I am so excited about this!
