About a week ago, I uploaded photos from my camera onto my PC and found this:
The photo of my cat, Pipig, resting on a folded tree skirt, enjoying the morning sun and the Christmas tree, still nearly bare at that point, was taken early one morning by my husband. He didn't mention it to me but left me to find the photo on my own. The cat's utter contentment (note those back paws dangling in the air!) is one of those little things that reminds me that joy can be found in the minutia of ordinary life. And, as delighted as I was by the picture itself, I was equally stirred by the fact that my husband took the time to take the photo solely to make me happy.
This is my contribution to the Wednesday Vignette, hosted by Anna of Flutter & Hum. Follow Pipig's example and take some time to enjoy the warmth of the sun as the days begin to lengthen again following the winter solstice! And merry Christmas to those of you celebrating the holiday!
