A few years ago, there was this catchy Coke jingle, with the actor singing: "There's one truth I've found, and it's never let me down: if you stock up on joy, there's enough to go 'round..." And man, those lyrics are ridiculously infectious.

It's not completely true, of course, because we all get tired -- weighted down with the cares of the world -- but still. It's surprisingly easy to make someone else's day a little better, and to bask in that shared joy.

I started volunteering at the hospital, just making the rounds before they can find me a placement in the PT department -- and it's not brainwork, really. But still, a smile and an offer to get ginger ale for someone who can't is enough to make someone who's post-op feel a little better -- and even though you stand for a long time while doing this sort of thing, the shared moment of cheering up is worth it.
