Pure Joy

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best source of joy.  Take ice cream for instance.  It would be a very rare thing that it would bring a frown to someone’s face.

I have good memories of my Grandma, she was a neat lady and I would have loved to know her more but she passed away a few years after we moved over here.  I’ll have to do a proper post as she was quite the lady.  But as summer is coming to a close and ice cream shops are closing for the season I am reminded how ice cream can make you smile.

This is a photo of her getting her first ice cream sundae stateside.

  1. This is a beautiful post and that picture is priceless. Your Grandmother & my Mother would have gotten along very well. I can see them sneaking off to the nearest ice cream parlor together. 🙂

  2. Beautiful memory…my best friend’s grandmother was Italian, and among her only English words were “Peanut Butter Cookie”…that little treat brought her the kind of joy evident in your grandmother’s face in the photo. We should all be so lucky to have a small thing like that to lift our spirits 🙂
