This is an image of joy! I prefer children laughing or the serene contentment on the face of so many of our older Religious, but joy is everywhere. I think life is too short to miss a day of joy. Sometimes we need to have a trunk full of joyful moments and take out these memories if the day is gloomy. I always remember Christmas mornings as such joyful times. I suspect my parents created these moments for us to remember always.
I do not know what started this reflection today but St. Paul did tell us to rejoice - "Rejoice always, again I say rejoice!" God loves a cheerful giver; He made us to be happy. Let us smile and remember our joys today and say thank you to God for making each new day a joyful one.
