Saturday Stories

I was talking to a friend the other day. They're going through a really rough time and have been for a very long time, both in their personal and professional life. 
They asked "where's the joy?" At the time I didn't have an answer, but I think I do now. 
It's in the little moments. Those tiny moments of happiness that make us glad to be alive. 
It's looking at your child and feeling joy at how amazing they are. 
It's laughing with a friend. 
It's that first sip of your morning coffee (or tea). 
It's seeing a beautiful sunrise or sunset.
It's playing with your dog or cat. 
It's the smell of freshly mowed grass, sitting in front of a warm fire, reading a good book.
It's listening to a child laughing, rain on a summer day, a hug from a loved one.
Life is tough, often it's one struggle after the other but there are moments of joy. They might not be huge but they are there. 
Maybe focussing on those little moments is how we keep on going.
