Joy Pauses

While driving along a country road this past weekend in South Jersey, I spotted this little flower stand... kind of hidden on the corner of someone's property. 

Without asking,  JP knew to turn around because I do not pass up roadside stands. 

In the distance I could see the field where the flowers were growing. Blissful.

There were several different types of bouquets and stems to choose from, but one in particular stood out. Somehow, they were only $5.

I bought my $5 bouquet of flowers home and put them in my best vase.

And I have been in all of it ever since they are quite possibly the most beautiful flowers I've ever had. 
I can't tell you how happy they've made me in these past few days. I have to stop whatever I'm on my way to doing in the house as I pass them just to linger and admire them, giving me little joy pauses throughout my day.

This is the kind of thing that happens when you get off the main road and slow down enough to see what is around you. 

I've been preaching that forever. 

Looking for the little things the give life the most meaning.

Finding magic in simplicity. 

It's there if you slow down enough to look for it.
