Finding Joy Amidst The Chaos
Two simple things that are bringing me joy right now, sunshine and all things yellow. Both of these joys are examples of many little ways I plan on incorporating joy in my daily life as much as possible during this troubling time. We might remember that there is a whole world coming to life outside if we all just take a moment to turn off the tv, the internet, and all of the other distractions.
