Small Pleasures

Last winter I had just suffered my first migraine so we were gung-ho on eliminating any factors which might bring another of the horrible bouts on. One of the things the doctor suggested cutting from my diet was chocolate. If you know me well, you’ll know I love chocolate. Really, I love it. But since I’m no t a fan of having a monstrous headache, I gave up chocolate.

Sad. Very sad, when I realized hot chocolate was out of the question for chilly evenings! Ahh! No cocoa? How would I survive?

I did survive, but I was not thrilled to be limited to non-chocolate beverages.

The good news? Chocolate is not one of my migraine triggers!

The very good news? This year I’ve been sipping hot chocolate with my honey, looking out at the falling snow and feeling very, very content. It doesn’t take much, does it, to make one happy?

Small pleasures sometimes make the biggest impact.

What about you? Any simple pleasures you most enjoy?

I like surprise phone calls from the unexpected caller. That brings me pleasure.

Yay on being able to eat chocolate!

As for simple pleasures, just a few minutes alone with one of my kids or pets.
