Finding Joy: Slice of Life 10/31 #sol16

slice of life

If you’re looking for it, you might not find it.

For me, it hides in the pages of my notebook.

In the lilacs beginning to bud in March.

In the bald eagle I see soaring overhead at least once a week on my drive to work.

In whimsical latte art.

In Frances’s look of bliss as she kneads my bathrobe or her favorite blanket.

In the puffy tail Abby gives herself when she tries to scale the living room wall.

In my son’s helpless giggle when he’s watching slapstick comedy.

Joy hides in the unexpected, in serendipity, in moments and spaces I can’t plan for.

  1. I love the line: “Joy hides in the unexpected.” These are the moments that might pass by if we don’t slow down to notice them.

  2. Love hearing about the joy that Frances and Abby bring. I haven’t stopped by lately. I may have to browse recent posts for cat pics. I’ve always loved your cat pics. They’re guaranteed smile makers!

  3. This warms my heart, Elisabeth. There are so many moments of small graces that blanket our days. Documenting them as little snippets just sends out the message that you are grateful for them and God just keeps sending you more. How lucky are you??? Love.
