A Top Ten List of Happy(s)
Happiness is--learning to whistle,
tying your shoe for the very first time.
Happiness is--playing the drum in your own school band,
catching a firefly,
setting him free...
Honestly, I could keep going, sharing verse after verse simply because each one makes me smile. Why, you ask? Well, because for a bunch of little kids, the Peanuts Gang was really smart. They got the fact that happiness isn't the big, expensive things in life. They got the fact that happiness happens in the simplest of moments--if you let it.
So I'm gonna take a page from their book (or, rather, a note from their precious song) and share some of what means happiness to me...
*Happiness is a hug from my daughters.
*Happiness is the sound of my nieces' squeals.
*Happiness is a memory of my grandparents.
*Happiness is snuggling into a corner of the couch and reading for hours.
See? Makes you smile, doesn't it?
So now it's your turn. Tell us one, two, five, ten of your happy (s).
