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.
