Finding Joy in Little Moments

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I am pretty happy camper. Most of my joy though, does not come from huge moments. It comes from little ordinary moments that bring me happiness. I decided to go to work today for a while. I'm salaried so this doesn't net me anything more in my pocket. We're expecting a big storm and I thought it would be wise to be on hand to answer calls that yes, the show was going on, and tickets were available.

As it turns out, it was a great idea. People were calling and I was able to assist. I also gave a ride to a friend I got to work and after the work finished I drove us to Trader Joe's. I had previously not known how to get there, so this was awesome. I bought clementines, chai tea, some mints, cheese, some gluten free rolls, and a choc cake and wine for hubby. I also bought a bunch of gift cards for my students.

Got home before the stormy weather arrived and learned work is closed tomorrow. The storm still has not arrived, but I am sure it will come eventually. We'll no doubt know it when it happens. We don't get many hurricanes in this area, but this should be pretty obvious.

I had a really good weekend, with downtime, work and happy time. Actually, it was all happy. I hope you can find happiness in your little moments, too, sparkies.

    Celebrating your happy! Way to go, Mar:) Here's hoping the storm is nothing more than lots of rain and a wee bit of wind. Fingers crossed. Enjoy your day off.

    I love your attitude. You are so rights to find happiness in small things. We need to enjoy each day as it comes, instead of waiting for some future happening that may never come. We're waiting for the storm here, too. I'll bet we lose power for days. Well, that will give me some time to read.
