Some of Life’s greatest joys:

by Rod Smith

1. Knowing that your aging parents are satisfied with life
2. Seeing your children engage in work and learning because work and learning are good despite the promise of reward
3. Carving out the time to read a great book
4. Turning an enemy into a friend
5. Finding a wad of unexpected cash in an old suit pocket
6. Getting your shoes shined in an airport while you just sit there looking rich
7. Being served a perfect cup of tea
8. Enjoying good curry
9. Hearing a family member apologize when wrong
10. Bathing a baby, then rocking him or her to sleep
11. Long-lasting friendships
12. Finding you keys and wallet when, this time, you thought they were gone for good.
