I'm finding that there are so many small things that bring joy to a day: sunshine on my walk to work, strawberries by the crateful (it's strawberry season!), and fresh flowers on my table. Discovering a good butcher down the street. Sitting in the park to read. Being able to converse with the mom of one of my students--in Spanish. Having a teacher so willing to help me find a small thing that I couldn't find so that I could do a project with my students. Having moments where I realize how sad I will be to leave this place.
In the midst of the daily, sometimes mundane tasks (there is always one more dish to clean...), I'm looking for small things that bring great joy.
What small things do you see?
