bits of color and light

 For approximately 3 years, I admired these lovely balls of color and light.
At the local Japanese store the lights hang in the window and behind the cash wrap.
Finally, I bought them.
Colored balls placed around the accompanied string of white lights.
so magical.
I stared at them on my lap for quite some time.
 These tiny little bits of color and light.
A rainbow of joy.
Such a little thing just lifted my spirits.
Just like that.
Since I can not sit around and admire colorful joy inspired light sitting in my lap,
I placed them across the piano.
joy sharing.
I am thinking though that those bits of light might need to rest across our bed frame.
Or perhaps I need to invest in another set of lights...
or two.
Sometimes it really is the simplest things in life that bring the biggest bits of joy.

    This is too funny that you just purchased these as I have been looking for just the right ones for my house and have yet to find the "joyful" kind!
    You make my heart happy!
