What makes you happy? Let us know!

Begin your sentence with the phrase, "Happiness is."

I'll start:

Happiness is a sun-dappled sundeck in the middle of summer.

Happiness is the early spring when the windows can be opened and the breeze blows the curtains gently. The birds are singing and a train in the distance gives a soft sound like far away surf. That breeze, warm and fresh is almost sweet.
Happiness comes when I realize, this is what it is all about. Not the cell phone, or the computer and not the television or the news of the day; but this rich moment.

Happiness is: Being surrounded by the ones I love. For me that means being home with my furries & feathers~~dogs & parrots.

Better add the one human that shares my air space~my hubby~sometimes. :lol:

Happiness is laying in a meadow, on a beautiful summer day, watching the clouds drift by, with the warmth on your face...and with nothing on the agenda.

Happiness is having a beautiful wife and a million dollars :lol:
I wish I could honestly find any fundamental truth in that, but I can't. I've seen enough people at that income level with attractive spouses get divorced. If someone is happy in that circumstance, it is probably for additional reasons. Sorry I am enough distracted by the realism of this comment, that I can't come up with any snappy rejoinder "Happiness is..." nor any genuinely heartfelt one. This comment actually makes me rather sad when taken seriously, happiness has nothing to do with anything here.

Ok it took me another minute to shake it off, but I got one. Did anyone already say:

Happiness is a snuggling cat.

You can have more than one wife if you have a million dollars, why stop at one.

"At fault" divorce decrees? Polygamy is a crime in various countries. Won't have that million for long there!

Happiness is not painting animals. They don't like being poked with the paintbrush. Some people don't like that either.

Being with my hubby. Been together 30 years now. Started right before I turned 16. He is the best person I have ever known. And I know a lot of good people. 🙂He is the person I most admire. I realize what a blessing it is to be able to have this relationship and be able say it still, after so many years. We could spend all our time together, which is weird for many people I know. We donít say a lot to others anymore because we have faced people saying it canít be true. A lot of anger and disbelief. Sadly they go on to say they donít believe in this, they have never found it. It makes us sad and feel very fortunate indeed. But we donít want to upset people. Obviously some of these responses are from people who are still hurting from their relationships or havenít found that special person.

Happiness is a child's belly laugh.

ianuk
10-20-2018, 06:17 PM
Not when the child is giggling so loud that it stops the cirque de soleil performance. When all the clowns start pointing at the child and they turn the spotlights on the family. :)

snoball
10-20-2018, 06:34 PM
Happiness is a baby giggling when you are alone. How's that?

On the contrary, happiness is sometimes posting a contrary post and watching the response 😃
