A dear friend requested a congratulations ecard, and I have just added it to our site. No quote this time, just a short, rousing ecard with music and animation designed to express the enthusiasm that goes along with sharing in another's success.

Coincidentally, while wrapping up the card I came across this interesting blog by Ed Shapiro "Chill Out: Finding Joy in Other People's Happiness". In it he speaks of the Buddhist practice of mudita, also known as sympathetic joy or deep gladness. This is a special form of joy as it responds to all things good, as seen in your enjoyment of someone else's good fortune, or when another's happiness makes you happy.

I hope this card comes in handy when opportunities to celebrate the joys of good fortune, large or small, appear.
