Simple Things Give Us Joy

It was the simple things in life that gave her true joy and peace. She promised to always remember that. - Queenisms™

This sounds like a cliche and maybe it is. But here’s just an example of simple things that have given us joy just in the last couple of weeks. A cat curled up on a lap, a story so good we want to read until our eyes hurt, a TV commercial that make us a little misty eyed, a stranger holding a door open for us when our arms were full, a kind word from someone we barely knew, a bunch of flowers from the grocery store that lived a lot longer than the $2.99 price tag would have led us to believe, a coating of snow that was so pretty we almost didn’t mind shoveling the walk, a sunset that put a cherry on top of a day spent feeling grateful for a warm house, a good friend and a purposeful life.

We suspect you’ve got your own list of simple joys and we’d love to hear them. Although a cliche, just listing the simple joys in life can be a mood booster on it’s own.

    Learning tai chi with a friend, quilting in the evening, writing and sharing poetry with kind strangers in an online class-these things really are feeding my soul right now.

    I walked over to my sons job today which is not far from my own place of employemt. I patiently stood by as he waited on his table; when he looked up and saw me that smile on his face and the look of love in his eyes completely warmed my heart; His words “what a pleasant surprise”..love, love, love my son!
