How do you find joy in the day-to-day "stuff" when sometimes reality just bites?!

Hubby & I just returned from our annual get away. It was wonderful, & I'm having a hard time adjusting to being back to reality. How or where do you find joy in your life when you'd rather just run away? (I'm not saying I want to abandon my family- but just all the crap that comes w/ being mom!- hope you understand what I mean- if not bash away- not like I could stop you if you wanted to! -lol)

  • You'll get back into the reality of everyday living soon enough.

  • Only because you have to then you go and find the joy in being blessed for being alive and being able to perform this all too important task.

  • You just do. You get up every day, get dressed, deal with whatever comes to you and put on a smile even when you dont want to. Eventually you are smiling for real because you understand how blessed you are to have children. Not everyone is able to.
