Under papers at work that is!

So I'm trying to find some joy this afternoon...just enough to get the motivation to get back to work!

I've been chatting with some friends recently about trying harder to stay in contact and know things about each other's lives. These are friends that I love very deeply. I am so encouraged by friendships.

They literally feed my soul.

So I'm looking forward to reuniting with them. Both physically and emotionally and spiritually.

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

{This weekend I definitely didn't watch 7 episodes of The West Wing on Saturday instead of cleaning house or spending time outside...that would have been such a waste of time!}

{I absolutely did not give up after 13 minutes on the elliptical! Why would I even have bothered going to the gym?}

{And there is no way I watched my dog tear up an entire roll of toilet paper. It is not even possible that I was too lazy to get up and spoil her fun!}

And those are just a few of the things I did not do this past week!

So this is about finding joy. But for the past week I haven't much felt like writing about joy. My cousin lost his 3 month old baby last week. It's startling to see how so much can change so quickly.

We were in Tennessee this weekend for the funeral. A mother's grief is indescribable.

Where does that leave me? Searching for those things that bring me the middle of great sadness. And if I look deeply enough, they are not that hard to see.
