Delightful distraction

These past weeks there have been moments where its been challenging to see beyond the grief and disruption and anxiety of life right now. I don’t think I’m alone in those feelings. If I’m really honest, what’s hardest for me is to not know when those things will end.

In the meantime, I’ve been trying to look for moments of delight. For signs that flirt with joy. Sure these moments don’t replace the grief, but they help me see life and love are still present.

A friend of mine shared a delightful episode from This American Life that I hope will offer you the same invitation.

As the news grows more daunting each week, let’s commit to look for moments of delight.

Listen alone, or with your kids and make a list of the things that give you glimpses of delight in these strange days.
