Playing games of make believe with my cousins under trees in a sunlit field.
Afternoons spent curled up with a good book and a contented, purring cat.
A good cup of tea, the smell of a special dinner cooking, smiling up into the snow falling down around me, the sounds of a good friend's laughter or the feeling of my husband's arms around me.
Some of the sweetest moments that make up life come from things most people would call ordinary. That's part of what makes peeking into friends' lives so special. We can relate to each other's stories of moments savored, adorable child and pet adventures, everyday kindnesses that never fail to bring a smile.
These sorts of ordinary and everyday things make all the frustrations of a day somehow seem a little less irksome. Think about it. Aren't the ordinary joys of life wonderful and sweet?
