Simple pleasures

In this joyful season of Advent, it is good to remember that there are simple pleasures in life, and not just the ones thrown at us by advertisers on tv or in catalogues.

Last night, my youngest son climbed into bed with my wife and I. A few minutes later he was asleep, his little face angelic.

This morning I threw on a jacket I hadn't worn in a few weeks. As I did so there was a jingle. I checked the pockets to find several euro in change.

Simple things, but they brought a smile to my face. There are simple pleasures in your life also, I'm sure - may they outweigh any sorrows ...  Amen.
