Joyful Enthusiasm

Going through the halls of the school today, I sense an atmosphere of joyful enthusiasm in the students.  True, we are just back from Easter break but the smiles and joyful laughter are really apparent.  It might be that graduation is approaching as is the end of the school year, but as Robert Frost says, "there are miles to go before I sleep."  I think young people look on the sunny side of life even though many are carrying enormous family burdens.  Let us, as adults, take a lesson from these young people and share the enthusiasm we have for life, even though we might also be carrying enormous burdens.  Perhaps our joyful enthusiasm will help someone to get through the day.
