STOP AND THINK – Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. (Dr. Seuss, children’s author)
What good advice for adults as well as children! When good things we enjoy come to an end—whether it’s a relationship or an activity—we often go through times of sadness and even grief. That’s normal, but if we can recall how great the experience was and give thanks that we had it, our tears will be replaced with a smile.
I will forget my complaint; I will change my expression, and smile. (Job 9:27)
