Reverb 10: December 27th: Ordinary Joy

December 27 – Ordinary Joy

Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?

(Author: Brené Brown)

My family loves to watch movies. However, we've never successfully had a family movie night because Parker is a bit too young to sit still for one. James and I watch movies, we take Naomi and Nathan to the movies, etc...but the family thing never works out.

Well finally, a couple of months ago, we were all sitting here at the house and it actually worked. Tabatha and all her kids were over for Naomi's birthday. We all sat down in the living room, adults and kids alike, and started watching How To Train Your Dragon, which had just come out on DVD. Everyone enjoyed it! Parker and Julian, who are both 2, didn't sit enthralled through the whole thing...they got up and played some. But it was so pleasant...All 10 of us sitting here watching a family movie and the little ones finally being old enough to enjoy it.

It was fun, and makes me look forward to doing more of that in the future! Family time ranks pretty high on my list of favorite things :)
