My mind is heavy with grief, worry, and stress
But I choose to be joyful
I choose to find the joy in the mundane
The laughter of a child
The chirping of a bird
The sound of a cleansing rain falling

The heavyness of hard circumstances
Cause discouragement and sorrow
But in the midst of that, I choose joy
Found in hugs from my family, 
Smiles of friends,
And the everyday beauty of life
