December 27 – Ordinary Joy Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?
Besides spending time with my family. I love to garden. Summer time finds me up early heading to the farm to work in my garden and enjoy the peace and serenity. Most of my trips to the farm are alone, which I take the me time to just chill out, empty my mind of thoughts, talk to God and talk to those who are no longer with us physically, but remain in my heart. I think this qualifies for an ordinary joy, and it's one of my favorite things to do. I miss being outside in the winter. I spend many days just watching from my porch, the little squirrels which live in the neighboring trees come to my little red wagon and eat ears of corn I place in it, for winter feeding, dreaming of spring to come and playing in the dirt again.
