Shared Happiness

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can’t buy.

I ran across this sad story today. That is where the quote above came from.

I was reminded how greed and envy can really ruin a good thing. I’ve seen it happen over and over again. Where two people could be enjoying something together until an ugly thought crops up on someone’s head, “hey, this thing is so good, I could be having it all to myself!” They don’t realize that that is the reason they are having such a good time, they aren’t by themselves.

Read the story and let me know what you think.
