Small Things that Give me Joy

Hello! Happy Superbowl Sunday. 😉

Recently a reader commented asking for happy thoughts back. This post isn’t happy thoughts, but instead a list of things that may not seem large in the big picture of life, but give me joy anyway.

“Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy!” -Pslam 47:1

  1. Sitting in front of a fireplace and feeling the heat on my back.
  2. Playing board games with my family.
  3. Getting the glimmer of a story idea.
  4. Opening my blinds to let the sunlight in.
  5. Smelling candles.
  6. Wearing my ballet shoes.
  7. Jumping into a pile of leaves.
