I have been reflecting on joy this week,
amidst the sorrowful happenings
the cowardly act of terrorism
in Boston, of course
the death of friend's husband
from a massive heart attack
(he was a mover and shaker in the community
and one of the nicest, most grounded guys around)
Those kinds of occurrences can make joy seem
out of reach.
On the other hand,
those kinds of occurrences
are an invitation for us to cultivate joy,
to notice and appreciate those precious moments
when everything seems right with the world,
when children say or do something amazing,
when love -- old or new -- seems bright and shiny,
when something touches our heart
in ways large or small.
we anchor those moments of joy in our heart
and allow them to remind us there is hope
even in our moments of greatest darkness
Share the Joy.
