My mind couldn't wrap itself around any 'heavy, deep or real' thoughts for Beautiful Monday, so I thought I'd just share the above picture, a simple joy.
This 'simple joy' was put down by the street for bulk pickup one day.
AND promptly brought back up from the street by...moi'.
It's a skinny thing that stands 5 ft. tall, has that cool faux...ok...fake bark and a sturdy metal stand. The only thing wrong with it was that the lights on it didn't work. After prettifying it with cute ornaments along with some vintage metal pipe cleaners twisted around a pencil, you would've never known it was on it's way to the dump. In addition to it being a simple joy, Grace and I had a wonderful time being together decorating it.
This is the time of year that we can get so caught up in busy-ness along with our normal day-to-day business, that it can flat wear us out.
But maybe, just for a moment, can you think of a 'simple joy' you have, or have experienced that could bring the simpleness of CHRISTmas back into perspective?
It's All SIMPLE JOY Good!
