Moments of joy

Little things bring us great joy

This week was a bit up and down - some anxious moments and some that brought me joy.

So looking back on those joyous moments, I found that it was really the little things that brought a lot of happy moments this week.

Sometimes it's just hard to pick a single moment, so here are some of them, the many moments I want to remember this week ...


Chicken noodles that my son loved so much he wants to eat them again and again - now that was a moment that brought me the most joy.

My little clip on ipod arrived - my nano decided it's had enough and is slowly fading. This time I thought I'd get a little clip on to help me with my exercise routine. I'm always picking up the nano as it drops out of my pocket so the clip on is a real treat. Wasn't sure of the colour but the green looks awesome.


A free angel reading from Angel Soulfood on FB yesterday. Most days we have the faith and in our hearts we know but just now and then the little demon of doubt creeps in and we question whether all this is true or just a straw we hold onto to give us strength to move on. 

Yesterday morning as I sipped my tea, I looked across at the hills and asked the same question - are you really there, why then are you silent. Then as I looked through my FB news feed I came across a post from Lisa Beachy - ask your Spiritual Team to prove they are around in a surprising general way. Just ask for a sign. And so I did. Soon after that Jodi Chapman of Soul Speak posted that Angel Soulfood was offering free readings and so I put my name down. 

I'm always blown away by how the Universe works and inevitably always obliges and restores my faith in it and all that is Divine. Couldn't have asked for a better sign. And the reading truly brought me great joy.

My lovely Pohutakawa tree that I thought was dying suddenly starts to bloom again. So happy I won't need to cut it down. And little Pohutakawa are peeping through. - Summer is round the corner. Yay.


So thrilled to see the little birds dropping by and enjoying the bread crumbs meal I put out for them. I love watching the birds eat. But have to stay very quiet and still as any movement sends them flying.


And last but not least, I can see the hills again - my neighbour trimmed his tree that was blocking my view. I had wished he would trim his plants and guess what the Universe obliged yet again. The storm some weeks ago must've damaged his tree and he finally trimmed it.  I can enjoy my hills again.

So grateful for the little things that bring me joy.

  1. Hi Suzy ~~ I liked your moments of joy. It was really nice that the neighbor cut his tree and you didn't even have to ask him or make a fuss. The Chicken noodles would bring me joy, especially the one you make. :) May God continue to bless you,

  3. It seems any time we still ourselves long enough to observe, we will find those moments of joy. They really are al around us all the time.

    I loved seeing yours.
