Find JOY

I have found such joy in simple things; a plain clean room, a

nut-brown loaf of bread, a kettle as it sings; a leaf-laced square

along a floor where yellow sunlight glimmers through a door. I have

found such joy in things that fill my quiet days: a curtain's blowing

grace, a potted plant upon my windowsill, a rose fresh-cut and placed

within a vase. A table cleared, a lamp beside a chair, and books I

long have loved beside me there.

I have found joy in quietly sipping a cup of tea, of smelling it's essence, taking in the flavors, feeling the warmth, and the pure joy of holding the cup in my hand.

Have a delightful weekend noticing where you find JOY.
