Today was a good day, had a joyous time 
Didn’t get some increase or a prize
Something long hoped for didn’t materialize 
The day was typical except for the use of my mouth and eyes

Some people I often see and usually just wave hi as they pass by me
But this day rather than just waving, we started chatting 
And it was joyfully interesting
A simple chat sounds routine and boring 
But talking feelings out and sharing 
Makes life joyfully uplifting 

Then later I picked up phone 
Just to have a simple chat with those I’ve been meaning to call in awhile 
The simple chat turned into long conversations with much laughter 
And at the end they said the enjoyed talking to me
A simple chat, can lighten the day, and make the heart merry
And Proverbs 17:22 says…A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.
