Saturday 1/3/09 - "HAPPINESS IS...."

(Ohhhhh, I'm soooo happy - and soooo excited!)

"HAPPINESS IS...."

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." - Mahatma Gandhi

Happiness according to Prayer Girl:

Happiness is when your son and his wonderful wife-to-be come to visit.

Happiness is the knowledge that my son and his fiance are well suited for each other.

Happiness is watching the happiness of my son as he interacts with the woman he has found to live his life with.

Happiness is spending the day with them having Starbucks triple grande coffees, browsing the elegant shops of our downtown tourist district, and laughing and reminiscing.


Happiness is cooking a Christmas/New Year's meal that didn't leave me exhausted and everyone enjoyed.


Happiness is playing games - UNO and Rummikub - with them.


Happiness is having my son show me how to use the espresso machine I have had for years, but could not remember how to use.


Happiness is being sober and having harmony in what I think, say, and do.


Happiness is having the freedom to make choices every day.

Happiness is having found the right man for me.

Happiness is being able to write a short blog and knowing that's O.K.

Happiness is being Prayer Girl and praying.
