Delighted

Check out the delight on this woman's face. I had my camera pointed at her, just waiting for what I new was coming. She was watching some little kids throw balls at the dunk tank on which sat Fr. Bob. Once he went in, the crowd went wild.

Sure, I would have enjoyed seeing Fr. Bob fall into the water - who wouldn't? But I have found that I enjoy seeing the reactions of others even more than I enjoy seeing the main event. This is part of "the journey is as important as the destination" motto I've embraced.

Pure delight. It is a joy to behold. It's more often seen on the very young, but once in a while, if you are looking for it, you can find it in one your own age. When you DO find it, savor it.

And that's my advice for today.
