Finding Joy in the Smiple Things
Ok, so I know most, if not all, of you will think I am completely crazy. But I learned something new today. I love the sunny weather because I get to do laundry! And I love it so much that by the end of the day it is hard to find a dirty article of clothing left in the house. Usually laundry is not a fun task for me. Sure the sorting, washing, and drying are fine, but the pile of clean clothes to then fold and put away, not so much fun. Yet, I learned that I truly love warm, sunny days simply because I get to hang my clothes out to dry. And although it does take more time to finish the laundry, I love doing it so much more. I suppose being out in the sun, feeling like the world has slowed down in it's rotation, or that I have some type of connection to my ancestors, or even the joy of fulfillment, I'm still not quite sure why? But I love it. And the folding? I get to do it as I take the clothes off the line, so there is never a daunting pile staring me in the face. Sure it takes all day, but it is slowly progressing all day and never takes a big chunk of time. Just the simple things.. I'm amazed at how much joy I found, but I found it and I will enjoy it!
