172: The Difference Between Happiness and Joy
Inspired by the book Joy Even On Your Worst Day by Tom Are, Jr.
this seasonal latte is delicious
thank you for bringing me flowers
I have never felt more myself in this sweater
the dog sliding to meet me at the door
the rain pausing while you walk to the subway
the last page of a book
the smell of coming home.
“this is beautiful”
and “I am grateful.”
we have student loans
we are new to town
the chicken went bad in the fridge
the hair around your part just won’t lay flat
but still you take my hand
and we dance in the kitchen
because love knows our name
and we have each other
and at the end of the day,
that’s all the beauty we really need.
