“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.” ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
Life happens every day, the moment to moment mundane or magical that combines to create the rhythm of our existence. When we are in a moment it can see endless, but once it is past, we realize it was fleeting. Kids take forever to complete a task but grow up overnight. Parents age when we aren’t looking and suddenly we have to become the adults in the room. A priceless lesson for each of us to grasp, is the one that compels us to grasp the joy in every breath. We cannot slow down time, speed it up, or skip the painful times regardless of how we might temporarily wish to do so. The speed of passing time is the same for us all, but how we soak up those moments varies, and it is truly the one thing within our power to control. This year the staff of Evy’s Tree has experienced the same roller coaster emotions and experiences as the rest of our fellow Americans, and like you, we have had to learn to practice the act of choosing joy every day. Is it always easy? No! Is it a mental discipline we have to learn to make a daily habit? Yes! Joy is “a great feeling of pleasure and happiness”, and it may seem contradictory to the daily headlines to verbalize that you are choosing joy. But even the darkest moments can provide a small moment of joy if one has trained their heart to see and grasp it. We encourage each of you to join us is pausing every day, breathing deeply, and making a conscious decision to look for the pleasure and happiness in the biggest or smallest events of your day and upcoming months.
