Happiness is…

…a brisk sunny fall day.

…the companionship of joyful dogs.

…the sound of rushing water.

…planning the weekend’s menu for good friends.

…glimpsing the twitching tails of the neighbor’s Arabian horses through naked trees.

…chickens racing after you to see what you’ve brought them.

…the warmth of a purring cat.

…the overwhelming love and support of family and friends for a marriage 26 years in the making.

…filling an egg carton with your own eggs.

…finding new creatures in unexpected places.

…hanging clothes on the line to dry.

…savoring a clean house.

…admiring a giant pumpkin that overcame its adversaries.

…planning the future.


And that’s just today.
