We all have reasons to be grateful, even if we are struggling with hardships in our life. With each joy is sorrow somewhere or another. A few months ago, I read 5 Years in Heaven. It helped me focus on a pleasure when I was feeling a sorrow. This has been hard for me lately, but we can train our brains. Here are 50 joys in my life.  

I'm moving my content from www.myimperfectfamily.com. This post is from 2015. It's interesting to see how my life has changed.

50 Joys in My Life

1. My husband. This year probably has been the most stressful in all of our years. If we didn't laugh through some of the chaos we probably would have gone batty.

2. My kids. You girls have handled the change like champions. They have just with the flow. 

3. My parents and sister. I cannot wait to have my parents as my neighbors soon.

4. My best friend and my friends. My best friend was planted in my life just when I needed her. I know God planted her in my life. She has taught me what true friendship is. I look forward to our conversations every day.

5. Writing is a release and joy for me. I think without it I would go a little nutty.

6. It's a pleasure to be able to take my family to so many events that blogging allows me to do. My kids will grow up with lots of special memories. 

7. Moving has been one of the most difficult things that I've even been through. But, I look for the joys. My little deer has been a pleasure. I see God in nature around me. 

8. My frozen shoulder is slowly thawing. I gained thirty degrees of motion in a month.

9. Every Friday we buy pizza and watch a movie together. I look forward to it.

10. I enjoy playing brain games on my phone to help me escape for a little bit.
