Everyday Joy.

Posted: October 12, 2018 in Postcards from Cancerland.

Today I find joy in the most everyday places…

in a cool morning! It’s FINALLY Fall!! I’m ready to break out the sweatshirts and warm beverages!!

in the unbelievably loud noises that emanate from our sweet little beagle. There is snoring and snorting. There are strange guttural noises that wake us up at night. The wonder hound snores like a constipated middle aged linebacker. It’s obnoxious and hilarious at the same time.
in this picture of my granddaughter…
in the color red.
in making my wife laugh.
in old music and new books.
in “White Chocolate Wonderful” from Peanut Butter & Co. This stuff is basically a mouthful of magic. It’s peanut butter blended with white chocolate and it is AWESOME!
in angel hair pasta. It’s the finest of the pastas. It’s good to eat, it’s also fun to fling at unsuspecting strangers.
in podcasts about the Enneagram, Star Wars, and the Marx Brothers.
in candy corn, it’s definitely my favorite candy vegetable.
in slip on shoes and baggy cargo shorts.
in a good nap in a comfortable chair.
I find great joy in the familiar and flawed places, because that is where it is hiding in plain sight.
Joy is all around us, it just has to be seen to be-lived and believed.
