Pieces of Joy

I love finding little things in the day that are joyful.

  • Like, passing a gradeschool during recess and listening to dozens of children laughing;
  • Watching the neighbor teen "race" with his little short-legged terrier running like it meant his life, the little dog's tail wiggling so much that he zigzagged as he ran, stopping now and then to smile at his master and let the teen catch up;
  • Sitting at a light and hearing loud cheering from the car next door with its window down and realizing the guy by himself is singing at the top of his lungs to the radio, his head thrown back with glee;
  • Babies being strolled by on the first spring day;
  • Tulips and crocuses have exploded out of the hard wintered soil;
  • Putting my coat back in the closet, finally;
  • Spring cleaning! Leaving the windows and doors open, sending the old stale air out and letting the fresh spring air in;
  • Bliss.
