Joy

Oozing from my fingertips, rushing through my blood.  Exuding out of my body, surrounding me like a happy cloud.

Joy.  Quick, dancing feet.  Sunshine through my teeth.

In the midst of troubled times, I find joy.

It’s the warm sand between my toes, the powerful waves breaking at the shoreline.

It’s the unexpected random act of kindness, it’s the piece of trash I retrieve off the street.

It’s the hug between friends, the laughter between strangers.

It’s the “God Bless” from a homeless man and the wind rushing through my trees.

In the midst of troubled times, I find Joy.  Pure, unadulterated joy.

Do you see it?  Can you hear it?  Do you feel it?

Find it and you will see.

There’s more to life than meets the eye, if only we can feel JOY.
