Joyful Heart

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year. Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Describe a moment if your life when your heart was full and overflowed with joy.

Oh, when I had Wee One, for sure. Not that day, necessarily, because I was not expecting her so soon and overwhelmed and had surgery and she was in a special care unit and I had internal bleeding and a catheter and was afraid I’d had a seizure and and and…

But a couple of days later, after she got out of the special care unit. I wasn’t bleeding internally, I could use the restroom by myself, I had eaten a meal, and I had maybe showered. I was looking at her perfect little 6 pound self and weeping a bit with joy. I sounded like my own mother when I said to her, “This is the best thing I have ever done.”

I still feel that with her sometimes, though its not as surreal as it was that day.

How about you?



Okay, your turn.
