This is absolutely everything!
Happiness is not one great big undefinable thing. Real joy and real contentment actually happen in the concrete every day.
It’s the little things.
Those little every day things where joy resides in it’s simplest form.
These are my every day joys from the last week or so.
When fifth graders didn’t understand what I meant when I said, “Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.” at the end of the lesson.
Tuesday when Beau beat me at chinese checkers for the very first time!
Drinking wine with YBW by the fire at Naked Mountain on Valentine’s Day.
Finding the right calphalon skillet to replace the damaged one. And it was only $40!
Talking with Sally.
Being behind the lens of my camera.
This photo of Baby K laughing so I can see all her teeth!
Leaving the house at 7:30 am to get gatorade and soda crackers for YBW.
Taking Jessica’s birthday gift to the post office.
These are random every day things, but I found joy in each one of them.
(to be clear, I was not joyful my husband had food poisoning, I was joyful I could do anything to help him)
Y’all, that’s where the joy is! All you have to do is look for it.
Where are your every day joys?
I had a wonderful visit with a cardiac nurse at a checkup this week, 47 years ago I went to chess club with her Dad when I was in grade 10. I am not sure how we discovered this as she has a different surname but we had a wonderful chat about many things. Unexpected joy.
