There are so many little joys to be grateful for in life, treasured not for their grandness or “importance” but for the happiness they bring to each moment if we heighten our awareness of the present. It’s easy to get wrapped up in obligations, multitasking to fit it all in. But if we can stop and take time to notice, these little joys gift us with peace, a smile, and connection to all that is positive.
I’ve been recording some of the many little joys in my life via Instagram and Facebook but want to share them with my blog friends as well. What Little Joys bring light to your life?
My art supplies… always beckoning me, inspiring me, and encouraging me to play.
My backyard bird haven… plenty of shelter, water, and food. Seeing them flit about happily brings me joy.
That first cup of coffee in the morning, made even more special by being in a favorite mug.
Purple crocuses bring the message that spring will soon be here!
Sunshine yellow daffodils soon follow crocuses.
Evening walks with the dogs. My way to release the stress of the day , transition into my personal life, and take time to notice the little joys in nature with my pups.
Freyja’s soulful eyes. This gorgeous girl was once someone’s helpless puppy mill breeding dog but luckily for both of us, she’s been my little girl for 3 years, bringing me joy with every soulful expression on her face. I think we rescued each other!
Rag rugs are a great way to salvage scraps of material and give them new life. Each piece has a story. I made this rug over 20 years ago and enjoy the vibrancy and cheerfulness of every color.
Silly socks… just because.
Warm cinnamon rolls with icing drizzled on the top. Comfort food at its best.
