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)

There is nothing like children, especially around the holidays. Even though I am an aunt *many* times over, they always provide lessons through their discoveries about the world around them.

My two year old niece stated that she wanted an iPod. I knew that wasn’t going to happen, so instead I ran into the next best thing. A friend of mine told me about the preschool monkey games When I Grow Up and  Monkey Preschool Lunchbox and how another two year old enjoyed them. So, I downloaded them both to my iPod Touch and let her borrow it to play the games.

I was surprised how quickly she caught on. She’s was so proud of herself when she solved the puzzles and counted along. It was this simple moment that brought me joy.
