It is always the simple that produces the marvelous.
~ Amelia Barr
Have you heard that new McDonald’s slogan?
I have – at least nine thousand times...
“The simple joy of having it all.”
And it’s cracked me up nine thousand times, too.
Actually, 9001 now that I’ve typed it.
Here’s a newsflash –
There is absolutely, positively NOTHING simple about having it ALL.
And all implies, well, ALL –
Poison ivy, badger attacks, quicksand, the plague… etc…etc.
I don’t know about you, but I’m just not feeling the joy there.
Here’s a slogan that’s more to my liking:
All joy is simple.
I figured it out back when I was five –
in the moment I reached beneath the red hen and discovered…
that beautiful brown egg.
PROMPT: I’ll bet that you knew the “All joy is simple” rule back when you were five, too. What was your moment of delightful discovery?
Wishing you a weekend of simple joy…
