Do you ever feel guilty for being happy when there is so much sadness around you? I watch the news and am horrified and saddened by what’s happening abroad and in America. I listen to the stories of suffering right here in our community with people losing their jobs and trying to figure out how they will take care of their family.
I watch the news and heart sinks but then I turn off the TV and start making dinner for my family. By the time we’re sitting around the table and having dinner, I’ve pretty much forgotten the misery that a mere hour ago had infested my heart.
Now I’m playing with my little boys and making them laugh by making silly faces. After dinner, we run around and play tag and all fall on the floor in a pile of giggles.
