I have often been asked if I am always happy since I am always smiling and cheerful. As you know, my general reply is that no one is always happy, but I prefer not to impose my low moments on others. More importantly, perhaps, I often am able to feel better when I continue to exude a positive demeanor for people frequently respond in kind and help improve my mood.
But know this: If you asked me if I was always happy, my response would be, I am always happy with you. Even on my darkest days, a smile, a hand, a hug, a word from you turns my sorrow, anger, grief to simple joy. Indeed, the mere thought of you can bring a smile to my face.
If you are reading this, you may be sad and grieving, feeling bereft and lost. Please, don't, for I will be with you till your last breath, if only in a warm memory that brings a smile to your lips as you close your eyes and remember, I love you.
