So much is going on in the world. Terrorism and crime- another tragedy with every news report. Politics at a frenzied pace.
Sadness struck close personally, too. Four girlfriends together for an annual girls’ night at our local dinner theater. Then there are three as one gets word that her sister has died.
How do we still celebrate?
The sun shines, flowers bloom, babies smile, a friend hugs, a memory warms your heart, you learn something new, you read a good book, you taste the perfect strawberry, loved ones say “I love you,” you hear a funny joke, your pet nuzzles against you, a task is accomplished, beautiful music plays- each day still has small moments that bring joy.
