Yet, have you thought of just how amazing it is to be alive?
To feel your heart beat?
To be able to smile? Laugh? Sing?
You can choose to be happy, to see the beauty around us.
You may need to work at it (I have…and continue to), but it can be done!
God of Joy and Grace, help us choose to be happy. Help us be mindful of our lives as they are, not as we think they should be. Help us smile! Amen.
