True Wealth

A friend of mine emailed me the following about the hummingbird, Modus45’s logo:

“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.”

Isn’t it the truth?

I mean, the question we tend to ask or hear most often is, “How was your day?”

Laughter and love – or their lack – tend to dictate the answer.

I’m not writing this to get all philosophical or deep or anything. People much  smarter than I am have laid bare the topic of where true happiness lies.

I guess I’m just saying that I’m a lot like you, floundering for beauty and joy during uncertain, even unbearable, stretches.

But then, up pops a daffodil. Or a good friend’s loving text. Or a baby’s laugh when you make a silly face.

It might take a moment, but then you smile and remember.

Life is rich. Beauty is everywhere. Every personal connection has meaning.

And laughter is life’s sweetest creation.
