  • Be Ready to Accept Happiness

    Be ready to accept happiness when it shows itself. If you are lucky enough to know happiness when you see it, trust it. Love and joy and peace and family are for us all, though we have none of us exactly earned them. Waste as little time as possible with incredulous self-abasement. Take your blissful moments as you find them.
