The Little Joys To Be Thankful For

Life is full of joys! Receive them, give thanks!

It’s Tofurky Day!

There’s not much on my mind but taking in the abundant joys of life that I am thankful for.  And, these joys are not just experienced on the once-a-year holiday of Thanksgiving.

Yesterday, as I made it in and out of my local Trader Joe’s for a few things, I was delighted with a bit of joy.  There were a couple of dogs waiting for their owner and they were surrounded by a lil’ crowd that had formed.  Everyone was smiling and laughing and just, well, feeling joy.  And boy is joy contagious!

I hope the photo of what I saw gives you, too, an ounce of joy… and remember to be thankful for life’s lil’ joys, not just on a holiday, but every day you wake.
