Be a Spreader of Joy

Rain in July. That's what we woke up to this morning. It is fitting for the kind of week it has been in America.
 
Shootings everywhere.
 
I can't wrap my mind around such hatred. It's not where my heart lives.
 
This morning, instead of walking in the rain I watched the news. I should have walked.
 
So many questions. I think I know the answer.
 
Just love.
 
Today, I'm going to listen to people a little better. I'm going to hug a little longer. I'm going to be a spreader of joy.
 
Yes, it's fitting that it is raining in the desert in July. It doesn't seem right that the sun would shine today.
 
love, susan

  1. Yep, you should have walked. I no longer watch the news or read the newspaper. There are other ways to stay informed...

    1. Thanks for dropping in and commenting. You can bet I'll be walking tomorrow and leave the TV watching to someone else. :-)

  2. "A spreader of joy." I love that. There are those who spread hatred, but thankfully there are those (including you) who spread joy. Thanks Susan!
