Well, it seems that most of what I've been writing lately has been about things going wrong. I know I must find happiness, peace, and joy in all that is happening in my life. I know that if all these things weren't going on at the same time, it would be smooth sailing. I'm trying to find all the joy in my life and focus on the good things, because there are good things. For example, there is a lady at work who I have never really talked to. I say hi as I pass her in the halls but that's the extent of our conversations. Today she saw me in the library and started asking if I decorate cakes. My first thought was that she was going to ask me to decorate a cake for her. Then she told me how she was helping someone clean out their house and that person's ex had left behind some cake pans. She gave them to me, she wouldn't even accept payment for them. I don't know why cake pans make me so happy, I have over 50 of them already, but they do. I guess the lesson to be learned is that joy can come in many different forms. Doing something small can make a person's day so I need to "pay it forward" and look for small ways to bring joy to others' lives.
