What does it take to make your heart glad?
Relief from worry, maybe.
Seeing someone you love happy?
Even hearing two public figures amiably agree on something worthwhile
gives us hope... doesn't it?
However important those things might be to my daily outlook
there are swift moments
when very brief glimpses of the good life
give me great joy!
I love the sudden burst of mimicry from the mockingbird
as though he is too full to contain it all!
I am so pleased for a smile
from a complete stranger.
And someone's whistle in the dark
gives me a feeling that I am not alone.
But the frosting on the cake
is someone's prayers
said especially for me!
Now that really makes my heart glad!
