Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.
~ John Barrymore

I think that if we are open to it, we can encounter happiness almost anywhere. If you aren't looking to be happy, though, you won't be. That's almost a guarantee, I think. If you assume things are bad and people are mean-spirited, that's what you'll find. Life can be a self-fulfilling prophecy that way.
If, however, you are willing to be receptive to kindness and miracles and the amazing wonders in life, you will find those instead.
The other day I encountered Joy in a check-out line. (pause) That doesn't really have anything to do with this blog. I just was in line and then my friend Joy got in line behind me.
