Share the Joy Thursday: Such Little Things

A heart full of joy is purchased for so little,
for just the cost of a moment's notice

a heartbeat in your day. . . 



It might be found in 
a basket of white tulips sitting on table



the stillness of water and perfect reflections




little pink soaps in the shape of hearts



watering cans sitting on a worn shelf painted white



or when a couple of numerals sitting side by side
 remind you what life was like 
before you trashed your knee on the ski slopes


what life was like when you never thought 
you'd acquire the patina of age.


Won't you spend a little time
looking for JOY
and sharing it with us?


To play along:

1. do a post that tells and shows us what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post 
and paste it into the Mr. Linky box 
along with your name.

3. visit other players -- as many as possible -- 
and let their joy infect you.  
Leave them a comment about their post.
Let's start an epidemic of joy!

The images are wonderful : in some cases the images bring even more joy than the actual event as they are ordinary patterns made extraordinary by the photographers' skill.
