Share the Joy Thursday: Little Things

Today I'm finding JOY in small things -

like being able to take a deep breath
 without triggering a coughing spasm


precipitation is falling as rain,
at least right now --
though snow is in the forecast



I've got some cheery garden ornaments
making my garden smile.



What gives you JOY?

To play along and share the joy:


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!

Finding joy in the little things is like an added sense, a "faith" sense, I think :)

Love that decorative piece from your garden....beautiful.

Your garden makes me smile too Meri :~)
Lovely, ours is lacking water, very unusual for this time of year in UK.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Meri. I like the sentiment in your meme...if we don't share our joy, it remains stifled! My new meme is all about fun...that leads to laughter...and that leads to joy. Come on over to Mission Quite Possible.
Cheers,
Rosie@travel-i-tales

I always think that the best part about being ill is how great it feels when health begins to return. Here's to less and less coughing! Your garden and ornaments are beautiful! Thanks for hosting, Meri. This meme is a delight!
