I was sitting around cursing God, when is he ever planning to send across the clouds of happiness towards my way???? I huffed and puffed made a big face told him I am never going to think of him ever again. And finally he spoke!
He asked me this simple question which stunned me blue
What is happiness according to you?
I made a face like I know it all, but He is God and as Gods usually do, he knew I had not a clue.
But still I managed to rattle worldly wisdom I had managed to scrap up over the pittance years of my life.
“Happiness is a feeling of a flutter in the heart, like a wish fulfilled, an urge satisfied, when suddenly everything is just right about the world”
He smiled and said, “My Child (Gods usually use that term right??) The notes usually fly away; the bundles usually get buried so I throw lots of pennies all along the way. Stop ignoring the pennies because they can turn into huge bundles of happiness one day”
He disappeared, went away, throwing a clue for me to solve.
Not really enlightened more than before, I go back to whining just like yesterday. I pick up a pack of French fries to munch and think, wishing they stuff more in that tiny pack. As I was going to throw it, I see a few more French fries stuck way below. I smile, and sigh…..I had found my penny for the day….
