Joy Is Where You Find It

With all the turmoil going on in the world today, sometimes we overlook simple things that bring us joy. This post was from a few years back. Admittedly, it’s about times that I was out and about; today, I don’t have that privilege. Anyway, these dark days can’t last forever, so I took a look […]
