What can one joy do?

I am collecting some sayings about happiness and joy, and I ran across one in a book I am reading.  Here it is.

1.  One joy shatters a hundres griefs.

I love that quote.  I don’t know if it comes from China or where it comes from, but I really like it.

Did a joy ever take away the pain of your grief?  I can think of the joy of having the newborn overpowers the pain of childbirth.

This week I am going to ponder and write about this topic.  What can one joy do?

I will post some writing that comes from this meditation.

If you have anything to say about joy, please comment.
