The Small Joys

Pearl S. Buck may have said it best:
“Many people lose the small joys
in the hope for the big happiness.”
Perhaps this is one of the silver linings
in the dark cloud of 2020. We have been
forced to stand back from our normal
ways, so we that may re-evaluate life.

I doubt any of us will ever again take for
granted the simple pleasure of meeting
face-to-face with a friend for a cup of
coffee and a heart-to-heart chat.
Of such humble threads is the richest
fabric of life woven.
