Week 19 of the Wednesday Lists.
There are so many things to be glad about. I remember getting gas with a friend one time, several years ago now. I got out with her to keep her company at the pump, and I noticed that her gas cap was attached to the car by a little stringish thing. I exclaimed about this and how great it was because it won't ever get lost or fall off the top of the car and roll under and cause you to get down on your hands and knees to recover it. (Obviously, this had happened to me.) Jenny burst out laughing and said, "Oh, I love you. This. This is exactly what I love about you. You get excited about the most ordinary things." I remember feeling delighted by her words. But, also, I remember wondering, "Doesn't everybody?"
They should, you know. Life really is so sweet.

What are your little joys today, my friends?
