What makes you happy? – Part II

I find joy and pleasure in the inexpensive and accessible. These things lift my countenance and keeps my cup half full (vs. half empty).  

 For instance, yesterday my husband and I took a drive in the country. We stopped at an apple farm market. There I found great pleasure in:

     *  Talking to a wise, elderly farmer about a variety of apples (he chose just the right mix of apples for making applesauce and pies)

     *  Smell of freshly baked pumpkin spice donuts

     *  Took pictures of goats — I even was brave enough to allow one to eat from my hand and his/her tongue even touched my hand!

     *  A cup of hot apple cider. I felt healing begin as the hot cider trickled down my scratchy throat!

Look for the positives in everyday life — some days the task is more difficult than others. Good gifts are all around us if we take the time to be still and look for them. God sightings…that’s what I call those gems. Life is fragile, good, and precious!

 “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving,” – Psalm 69:30.
