In Others’ Words: Surpised
“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.” ~ John Barrymore, American actor
It’s delightful when happiness tiptoes up behind you, taps you on the shoulder, and then — when you turn around — yells “Surprise!”
Yesterday that happened when …
- my daughter’s laughter mingled with her boyfriend’s
- my 10-year-old crawled into bed wearing the silly Cookie Monster hat I bought her (to replace the one she’d lost)
- the first snowflakes fell from the sky (Ah! The weatherman was right!)
All little things … tiny moments when happiness snuck up on me. Reasons to be thankful in the midst of the “everything” going on right now.
In Your Words: Has happiness popped through an unexpected door for you? I’d love to hear about it!
