My name is Joni.
I am a Christian, building my relationship with God. I am a wife, committed to loving and supporting my husband. I am a mom , trying to raise two children to be the best they can be spiritually, mentally, and physically. I am a US citizen trying to be a responsible, knowledgeable and informed American. I am an unapologetic Disney World junkie and love to help people enjoy their Disney Vacation! In my heart, I am an organized, exercise loving, meal planning super mom. All that being said....I, like many others, sometimes fail miserably at some or all of the above. This is a blog to help me dump some of the never ending thoughts that clutter my mind and help me make the most of the EVERYDAY.
How the Blog started...
Do you ever have those almost perfect moments? Not absolutely perfect because there is no such thing, I'm talking about as near as possible to perfect. Would you notice that moment if it came along?
Way back in May of 2015, my little family and I were driving home from supper. My car had been making a mysterious noise and I rolled my window down so the hubby could listen for it. As mysterious noises always go, as soon as I purposely had someone else listen for it it never made a peep. Leaving the windows down, we drove in silence for a while. Silence that only parents in a car with a 2 and 12 year old can appreciate fully. I realized the weather was actually nice outside for this time of year, with almost no humidity. So we rode with the windows down, enjoying the breeze, listening to the 80's on 8 with the smell of sweet olive in the air. And life was good; peaceful, beautiful, almost perfect. I thought, "Thank you, God, for these moments to reflect on your creation."
I also started thinking about how I need to notice and appreciate these times more. We are so busy these days that we just go from one task to the next, not thinking or paying attention to anything but the completion of one thing and the moving on to the next. SO...the idea of the blog was born. A place where I can share with others and hopefully we can encourage each other to live In The Everyday.
