Daily Nugget - November 19, 2009

In the terminology I share with a friend of mine, a nugget is one of the nice little things that make you happy over the course of a day; things that you might otherwise overlook if you weren't making a point of being aware of them. Nuggets make life worth living, and remind you of all the little things that collectively make us happy. They are a piece of pure joy that you can anchor yourself on. Today was difficult, but it had a nugget late in the day. Generally, nuggets just happen on their own, but if you try, sometimes you can create them...

Before herding the kids upstairs for bath and bed, I put Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl on the stereo, cranked it up, and all four of us danced around the family room like lunatics. My two brown-eyed girls and one green-eyed girl.

That's a nugget.
