Looking for Joy

There is joy everywhere.  In the cemetery the birds sing, in the hospital, patients give thanks for extraordinary attention, when it is given, and in schools, children exult in discovery.  Sometimes everything just goes right.

This morning, I had a watch that needed a battery, and I found it at the local jeweler.  It wasn’t too expensive (this is Syosset) and I could tell time from my wrist again, without reaching into my pocket for the cell phone.

It pays to be cheerful.  Sometimes it’s an effort, but hey, life flows like the river, and if you’ve ever swum in a river, or floated with the tide, you know they take you places.  New places can be exciting too.
