Many things in life--career, finances, illness--don't come easy.
But some things do--and they're absolutely free to experience!
Like a child's silly giggle--so disarming.
Like nature's glorious sunsets and gentle breezes--so invigorating.
Like a stranger's smile--so unexpected.
Like seeing an old friend after many years--so welcome.
Like embracing the loves in your life--so enthralling.
Kind of makes the other things a little more bearable, doesn't it?
