Hunting for Joy.

I am struggling to find the joy today.

I have looked for the joy in the washing basket. It is not there.

I have looked for the joy in the washing up bowl. It is not there.

I have looked for the joy in the many piles of unhomed thngs dotted around our house. It is not there.

I looked under the sofa.

I found :-

3 pens- 1 leaky.

3 socks- all odd

5 assorted wooden puzzle pieces.

14 pence

An assortment of fluff and crumbs.

But alas no joy.

I looked out of the window, but the rain has washed away all of the joy.

I looked once more around the room.

And there it was.

A small, grubby Β thing.

‘Knock knock’ said the grubby thing.

‘Who’s there?’ Said I for the seventh time already today.

‘The Joy’ Said the grubby thing. Well. His smile said that anyway.

    I know those days, but a small smile and hug from little people can give the warmth of joy. Well put.
