Happy Hollow Lane.
Just how happy could they be on Happy Hollow Lane?
I was excited when I saw the sign. I thought, “What a nice place to live. What a nice name.” It made me feel happy! But then, I saw the rest…NO TRESPASSING, KEEP OUT! And it didn’t seem like a happy place anymore. They had to warn people – "Don’t come here! It’s not as happy as you think! We don’t want you here!"
Now, they may have a perfectly good reason for not wanting any visitors, especially strangers like me, but my idea of Happy Hollow Lane will never be the same. It will never be as happy.
What kinds of signs do we erect in our lives? Are they true to who we are, or who we want to be?
Just a thought for the day.
