Find joy in daily life. It takes active participation in what is already present, and receiving hints on what can be. Let’s be real here, there are periods when we go through traumatic circumstances and thank goodness they are temporary. Bounce back faster by letting yourself find joy where you are today. Think nutrition, herbs and spices, nature, trying new things, cozy living, sustainability, mindfulness, leaning in, learning, and accepting God’s grace.
Yesterday I decided to try something new that seemed complicated but turned out very doable. With green tomatoes from the garden, a simple dredge in cornmeal, flour, and seasonings mix, dip in milk, then dredge again and saute in a little olive oil… and …. YUM!!! So simple, my favorite food that I thought would be so hard to recreate was so easy and delightfully delicious.
Love to all! I wrote a poem to inspire you to find joy, and find joy all the time!
