I LIKE LIVING.
I HAVE SOMETIMES BEEN
RACKED WITH SORROW
BUT THROUGH IT ALL
I STILL KNOW QUITE CERTAINLY
THAT JUST TO BE ALIVE IS A GRAND THING.
I find joy in the oddest places. I used to think I was weird that such quirky things and small moments would bring me such pleasure, but now I know it doesn't matter so much how or where you find it - as long as you do. And I am incredibly grateful that I find it at all when so many people don't.
Some examples of what makes me smile -
* How the little solar flower on the corner of my desk bops along merrily in the light from the window.
* Pretty much anything Minion related. (The costumes/characters in the Despicable Me Minion Rush game crack me up.)
* The little notes my husband leaves for me. I never know where or when I'm going to find one, but I smile - and sometimes laugh out loud at what he wrote - every single time I come across one.
Where in the nooks and crannies of your life do you find your joy? What odd little things make you smile? Let's pay attention to them this week, and let's look for some new ones while we're at it.
