Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened. (Dr. Seuss, children’s writer)

The party’s over, the candles are burned down, and the gifts have all been opened. It’s a big letdown, maybe. The joy of the high has dropped to the low with tears. Dr. Seuss’ advice is very helpful, and it may turn some sad times into glad times. Don’t mourn that the party’s over. Rejoice that the party was such fun.

For everything there is a season . . . A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4).
