Don’t Overlook Life’s Small Joys While Searching for the Big Ones
Here are a few of my small joys:
The joy of a cooling July rainstorm after a literally scorching June
The joy of creating a new "garden room" by planting seedlings and watching them grow
The joy of a brisk walk each morning through my neighborhood.
The joy of putting together a satisfying meal, and then sharing with others
The joy of sitting down to listen to some of my favorite music
The joy of helping others discover the creativity and joy of blogging
The joy of getting back to the simple pleasure of single tasking!
The joy of slowing down enough to allow my brain to catch up with my body.
The joy of whatever makes me feel more like ME!
