Happiness is only real when shared. (Christopher McCandless, late American adventurer)

Another writer put it this way: “Life’s joys are joys only if they can be shared.” Whatever the emotion or circumstance, the point of these statements is clear: Life is better when it’s shared. Life may be at its most difficult when it is experienced alone. And at its most beautiful moments, its joy is increased when it is lived with someone else. We were created for sharing.

And I want all of you to share that joy . . . Yes, you should rejoice, and I will share your joy. (Philippians 2:17-18)
