The simple things in life are the best things in life.
Like eating "Coconut Joy" ice cream in Taylor's Falls on Mother's Day.
Like going on a paddleboat ride down the St. Croix River.
Like opening a wilted plant that my kids wrapped in a box three days ago as a surprise.
There are plenty of things in life that aren't so simple.
Internet goes down. A project at work takes ten hours instead of five. Calendar is busy even when trying to keep it unbusy. Unexpected stomach bug dampers daily motivation and mood. Kids whining. Friend decides to stop talking to you.
Where is joy? In the simple things. Joy is in the very simple things.
