Written by Maureen Killoran

And yet: When something knocks on your door and asks, “Can [your name] come out to play?”, remember. You can’t know if this invitation is one of many orrepparttar last one that may come your way. Life is like that.

I have a new bumper sticker that says, “Don’t Postpone Joy.” I think this is what Alice Walker had in mind when she wrote, in The Color Purple, “I think it [irritates] God when you walk byrepparttar 149159 color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it” (Those of you who rememberrepparttar 149160 book will realize I’ve tidied uprepparttar 149161 verb somewhat, although I admitrepparttar 149162 sentiment was more effective written her way!)

Joy, playfulness, doing your version of letting a budgie sit on your head – these are our human way of saying “thank you” torepparttar 149163 Universe forrepparttar 149164 gift of life – long life, short life, whatever weeks and days and years remain.

So, here’s my summer wish for you: Letrepparttar 149165 budgie of happiness sit on your head. Recognize there are consequences, but live with it. Let your motto be, "Don't Postpone Joy." May room for happiness, make time for play. Every day.
