Sometimes the little things bring the most joy

It was bitterly cold but the sun was shining, when I left work one evening last week. Before I even got my car door open, I could see my flower doing its happy dance.

I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring me the most joy.

It’s a solar-powered air freshener I keep on the dash of my car because it makes me feel good. Laugh more is the message it brings.

I think this little dollar store item is so much fun. My son and I were in the car one day, sitting at a red light. A good tune came on the radio and the flower was bee-bopping along. We looked at each other and joined in!

The flower also has great memories attached to it. I received this happy gift at my company Christmas party a few weeks ago. It was prize for playing a game.

You begin the game with a large ball of cling wrap. There are small prizes wrapped within the cling wrap ball from the outer most layer all the way to the center.

The game participants stand around a table. One person puts on oven mitts and tries to unwrap the ball while another rolls two dice.

When the person rolling the dice gets doubles, the person unwrapping the ball has to stop. You keep the prizes released from the cling wrap on your turn wearing the mitts.

I laughed a lot that night while playing the game. And the joy continues whenever I see my flower dancing in the sun.

Smiles and hugs!
