30 Day Challenge: Meaning Behind My Blog Name

I'm linking up with Katie over at Katie's Journey for her 30 day blog challenge.
How fun is that?
I'm sorry I missed day # 1 of the challenge, but I'm SO happy I found her in time to participate in day # 2. 
And hopefully more than that. 
We'll see if I can keep up.

I chose my blog name because in the midst of this crazy life of 
working and 
mommyhood and
wifehood and 
so on and 
so on. 
Life does not always go as planned. 

Things break. 
Things spill. 
I show up late. 
Or not at all. 
Dirty dishes are piling up. 
And the laundry needs to be folded.

It's so important in the business of life to just take a moment to slow down a bit and just be happy. 
Even in the crazy moments. 
Even if I'm totally stressed out.
Just Because. 

Because life really is good. And I have so much to be thankful for.  
Even if things don't always go my way and my to do list gets longer by the day.

There is always tomorrow, right?
What do you have to be joyful about today?
