As soon as she handed them to me, I wanted to burst into tears

June 08, 2020

Hello from Northern Virginia! I wanted to share my story because it is quite amazing how I received this seed of happiness. During COVID, my father lost his job. Thankfully, he is back to work now. I am only 25 years old and felt like I had the world on my shoulders taking care of my family. I was supporting my grandparents and father. Things are getting better slowly but the past few days have been tough on me emotionally. I have found myself in tears daily from both financial and health issues. Today there was a ray of sunshine that came my way! I went in to see a patient and without even knowing I am going through a rough patch, she gave me a seed of happiness. She gave me one for myself and one to give. As soon as she handed them to me, I wanted to burst into tears. It was like God was calling to me saying to be happy! Everything will be ok. It really brought a smile to my face and I will use this seed to remind me to be happy because life is beautiful!
