Been pondering the difference between happiness and joy. Happiness seems a bit fickle. It buzzes in when the " sun shines" and buzzes out "when it starts to rain". Joy on the other hand will surprise us. Happiness leaves us wanting more. Joy gives contentment. It can be found in a stranger's smile, a loved one's hug, warm memories shared with a friend, a lovely sunset, a single tulip, a job well done, an encouraging word, a prayer, a creative moment, a song. It is found in a life well lived.
