I’ve been looking through my Facebook albums for the past three days, trying
to find one picture that stood out to me. And then I finally did. This particular
photograph made me remember how good life can be sometimes. The picture I’m
referring to is one I took in L.A. about four years ago. It’s Jim
Carrey’s square in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater.
Carrey has always been interesting to me. While he has
made a sufficient amount of money for his over-the-top comedic
performances, he also possesses a refreshing depth that occasionally
filters into his characters. Okay, so I’ve never actually met the guy,
but I did watch his E True Hollywood Story.
Anyways, my point is, sometimes even the world’s goofiest folks get it
right. In his square, Carrey wrote, “Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily…”
I couldn’t help but think, whether you’re sinking your hand into the
Hollywood strip, or the fresh cement behind Papaw’s tool shed, there
are moments in your life that really do seem like a dream. And it is in
these moments, like Carrey’s, that you get it too, and you fully realize
how totally blessed you are.
