One of my favorite humorists is Patrick McManus, who writes about hunting, fishing, camping, and all things outdoors. Reading one of his stories, no matter how many times I've read it before, never fails to bring a smile to my face. In one of his stories, "The Worry Box," he talks about an old man with whom he goes fishing, and they have the following exchange:
"Why are you always so cheerful?" I growled. "Must be because you have so few worries."
"Nope," he said. "It's because every morning this incredibly wonderful thing happens to me."
"I'm not so sure I want to hear this," I said, "but what's the incredibly wonderful thing?"
"I wake up again! Dad-gum if that don't make my day!"
If only we all had that view of life, I think we would all be a lot happier.
