Another Five Minute Friday with Lisa Jo Baker. Today’s word is JOY and to be honest, I looked this morning to see what the word was, knowing fully well that I had a really busy afternoon and evening and wasn’t sure I’d be able to get it done. Usually, when I do a #FMF, I just check out the word and write. Today, I thought about the word throughout the day. Honestly, I feel joyous most of the time. Today after school, we had a get together with our faculty. I talked a bit about my blog and told them that tonight I was meeting some friend’s for dinner and that I had to get home to get my blog written before I went out. We rarely stay out late, but I wanted to be sure it was done before we left. I told them about today’s topic and we decided that each of my coworkers would tell me what joy means to them. So today’s blog is written by all of us…..
“What joy means to us…”
- Snuggles in the morning
- sleeping late on a Saturday
- Great sex followed by chocolate
- “Bar” modeling and popcorn
- Colleagues that are also friends
- “Life is better when we are laughing”
- Being at peace with yourself
That really seems to sum it up!! The joy we all felt tonight was evident as we sat around the table. We got to spend a few hours together today after school and it was so nice to see a different side from our “work side” and it was really a joyous and fun time. My heart is filled with joy knowing that I am privileged to work in a place that makes brings me so much happiness – and for that , I am grateful.
