Moments of simple joy

Life can contain all sorts of nasty surprises and unwelcome turns of fortune. You never know when reality will throw an unpleasant curve ball in your direction.

Yet every once in a while, it’s good to stop, look around you, and simply take stock. Right now I am doing just that.

And I realize that I am actually pretty happy with what I see. Life, for all of its ups and downs, truly does contain many moments of simple joy.

Today I am remembering to honor those moments. And I am also remembering to embrace them with gratitude.

This certainly doesn’t mean that life is perfect. But maybe it doesn’t need to be.
