Day to Day Adventure: Joy in ordinary things

Joy in ordinary things

I walked to the mailbox today.  No jacket & I didn’t freeze


I saw the green iris leaves peaking through the dried leaves.  Almost time to rake back the old brown dead stuff & prepare for the new green growth.


The mud isn’t ruining the kids shoes because we found fun muddy boots for them to wear outside when they exercise the dog & when they go out to play.


My birthday is next week.  Not forty yet.  Still ornery.


Phone calls & emails from old friends. 

It is good to rejoice together.


Hubby is researching places to stay on the beach.

Ahhh—I am blessed.

It is so easy to get caught up in what is wrong and forget the little joys.  It is so much simpler to just appreciate what I have & not wish for what I don’t.
