Happiness and Joy


Many of us are attending graduation ceremonies or sending congratulatory messages this time of year.  They’re fun occasions.  David Brooks, a columnist for The New York Times, spoke at commencement ceremonies at Arizona State University recently.  He chose to speak and write about happiness and joy.  He wrote that happiness is the great feeling of the graduate, but joy is “seeing the glow on the graduate’s face, the laughter in her voice, the progress of his journey, the blooming of a whole person.”  Joy is something we feel with, and for, others.  It’s a message well worth sharing.
