My mom and I were talking today and began to define happiness. This made me think about other people and wonder what makes them happy. So this post is for you to share what little everyday things you enjoy.
getting an email from my best friend.
~That would be an awfully big adventure.
~Time is what keeps everything from happening all at once.
Watching my kids succeed in something they are jazzed about
Hearing from special friends
Watching my dog chase her tail
Time on the farm
Sunsets but not moonrises (they ache too much)
Hot BBQ Chicken wings
A good movie
Chicken herder (inside joke)
Watching the absolute proof of ghosts video
A car that starts in the wintertime
A warm home on a winter day and an air conditioned one in the summer
A day with no whining
A full iced tea jug and plenty of fresh lemmon
My book getting published (oops... went into the realm of ecstatic fantasy)
The awesome people I've met here
Do I have to stop?
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. - Frederick Buechner
If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles, how can it be called progress?

O'siyo, Happiness is: ~Wearing my favourite, big, fuzzy sweatshirt while sitting on the beach at night feeling the waves run over my feet ~Watching/listening to someone laugh uncontrollably because of something funny I shared::lol ~Feeling my nose and cheeks freeze as I ride my Harley on a cool, crisp Autumn eve ~Realising every day just how truly blessed I am ~'Talking' to the animals ~~Sty-U
I always knew one day I would travel this road;I just did not know that today would be the day....

Happiness i so much a matter of perception. Often times we (as individuals) forget what truly makes us happy. We tend to think in terms of large things:cars, money, world domination... Its my opinion that happiness is ,really, in the small things.
watching lightning dance across the sky and having your son there who is in complete awe.
I hug from my boy.. the smile when my son sees me an I love you from my son My boy laying on my chest and telling me good morning My son
Waking up next to the one you love Groggy kisses with morning breath first thing in the morning Snuggling with the one you love those quiet moments when neither of you have to say anythign but a million words are conveyed with but a glance and a smile The emotion that comes with a single touch of a hand . the feel of warm breath on skin during an embrace ...enough of that...sorry
sunsets sunrises sitting in a field and getting to the point where you can hear the music being made by all of natures things. where the brook, the wind and the russle of the grass sings to you
finishing a story that I am happy with(doesnt happen often)
firends comrades loved ones the respect of them
being able to be happy
looking into my soul and seeing a glimpse of the beauty everyone else sees...its fleeting but its there.

Seeing someone honestly enjoy something I've done. Good music The flow of a stream to the page a laughing brook a good rain walking in the woods walking at night talking with friends about everything and nothing Water (I so long to walk a beach alone at night, but it's so far away) A freshly fallen blanket of snow remembering an interesting dream and most recently: finally meeting someone who has been looking forward to seeing you as much as you've been looking forward to seeing them (enough to spend quite a bit of money and time for it)
Sleeping late on saturday and the weather is nice and cool, curled up with my wife; then the dogs start barking and nudginge me with their nose and I have to get up walk down stais let them out, feed and water them and then go back up stairs and can still get to that place between wake and sleep.
