I love the sentiment of your poem. I will try to remember to pack my joy today. Actually, my first thought when I woke up was "I need to enjoy today." I haven't been relishing my days lately. Now, I will try to find joy in my day and share it with others. Maybe I'll have enough to pack and deal out.
Those are the exact sentiments expressed in the song from the musical, "ByeBye Birdie," "Put On a Happy Face!" Are you familiar with that one, or is it just a happy coincidence?

I live in India I am not familiar with musicals unless they are movies and that too mainly the old ones..So it is a happy coincidence .But then it is a common quote ..spread joy .especially during Christmas .Thank you for reading and reviewing.

Actually, 'ByeBye Birdie' IS an old movie (1963). Anyway, spreading joy always is a good thing to do, wherever you live.
That is a great message contained in this writing of only a very few words. This world would be a much better place if all of us gave and received more joy. The problem is that goes totally opposite to the love of money.
