When going through difficult times we often overlook the little things that bring us joy:
A beautiful morning.
A walk with a friend.
Listening to music we love.
Small wonders, small joys, can bring peace during painful times.
And during painful times, it is important to find joy in these brief moments of peace.
During my divorce I worked consciously to “see” these moments:
A moment to laugh with my son.
A moment to admire my daughter in her prom dress.
The beautiful flower that had just bloomed by the front porch.
The new puppy that was running around our home.
Little things may seem just that “little” but, they can carry us through by being our daily reminder that joy still does exist in our day-to-day world even when we struggle with our own pain.
“Dear God, help me to see the joy and beauty in the smallest things.”
