How Can I Keep From Singing?

There are days that start with singing.

And good fellowship over breakfast gears us up to deal with parking lot full signs at the airport and longish lines for Tims coffee with a relaxed humour.

But days that start with singing can hold tears, and fire for action when injustice shows its bald face at you. Tears and momentum carry you further - to listen to school peeves and overtired kids. 

And then comes along another good meal with friends to nourish anew. 

Yes the day has blessings, even a daughter's sweet song -  but all the while another daughter's heart is hurting. Still - generosity overflows. Friends rig a new outlet, family shares their heart and a stranger showers us with a gift of cash.  

With contented sigh, I smile at the world - only to come back down on my knees at water's edge. Ahh now these waters are a daughter's tears. I caress her brow to a lullaby's words.
How can I keep fom singing?
