Thief of Joy


Decades ago I saw a cartoon clip that never left my memory.

Person 1: (Image description: Person 1 bragging to Person 2 with this face 😏.) I have many poor relatives, but I don’t know them.

Person 2: Do you have rich relatives?

Person 1: (Image description: Person 1 with this face ☹️) Alas, I do. I also have many rich relatives. But they don’t know me.

God gave us different circumstances in life. Be thankful for life and do the best with what's been given to you.

With a grateful heart, joy will find you.
