Deciding to embrace joy

The past week has been a tough transition from vacation back to work, but I am finally there. I am at heart a REALLY happy person, yes, sarcastic but really find a good deal of joy on a daily basis. Yesterday and today (despite yesterday's post) have been some of the most joyous days of late. I have been really happy. So in love with my husband, so in love with boy. They melt my heart. I even started looking at my home as somewhere I want to stay.

I can say with all honesty that staying in one place has NEVER been something I wanted to do. But, I like where I am right now. I feel content. Also, not a common feeling. Joy - very common. Content - not so much. It is a cool feeling to be satisfied with things. Boy and hubby are so good to me and I think we are finding balance again in our house, our relationship and my humor is back. Live is feeling pretty good!

I too have never been one to settle down. For the first time in my life I feel at home in the town I live in.

I can feel joy at being the mom to a very special little boy, but I haven't been really happy in a long time.

You, my friend, are very lucky!

I am loving your posts.

Thanks! The hardest thing about settling down for me has been making friends. It turns out I don't make friends easily. It is most sincerely a work in progress.
