A Toast: to Small Pleasures

4 07 2011

With all of the things in this world that can cause stress and anxiety, it’s comforting to think of all of the things that can cause simple happiness and a feeling of contentment.

The jolt of joy that you get when you hear your friends have gotten engaged.  The instant image of a little baby face that forms when you hear that a new baby has decided to arrive.  The feeling of anticipation that you get when you have your feet dangling above the water and you’re waiting for a wave that will come up and splash you with cold water.  The feel of walking through cool grass with your bare feet.  The sound of a cat purring in your ear and re-reading a book you love because you like the way it makes you feel when you read it.

Hope everyone had a happy long weekend.
