Happiness is...

I have a smile on my face, cheerful and totally happy, as I wrap up my guest post of  a Day in a Sentence. Happiness is certainly to bring people and thoughts together that represent meaning, dreams, ideals. That's exactly what we get every week from Bonnie Kaplan's guest posts.

From our readers' comments, I realize that again and again happiness comes from the simplest things in life. It doesn't take much. It can be the sight of a bird and you can find it anywhere. It is volatile, it is unpredictable, but it is always there!

Thanks to everybody who shared a bit of happiness with us!

I am passionately happy when I am with my nieces and nephews! They give me tremendous joy! Is it any wonder I teach kindergarten and enjoy young faces all day? But when I go to the core of my happiness, it's really about feeling peace. That is what I pray for. With peace in my whole being, I am happy all day and with everyone I meet. Gail

I think David Crowder sums it up best for me when he sings "Oh happiness, there is grace enough for us, for the whole human race." Alicia

Like I tell my hormone-riddled, chock-full-of-drama students, "Happiness is a choice. Choose well."
Happiness is sharing a smile.
Happiness motto: Engage Me!
Happiness is spending time with family, holidaying, enjoying a sunny day, having a successful lesson but most of all enjoying every minute of every day, even the bad times. There is always something to smile about.
A glorious sunset, a sudden burst of bird flight, the scent of violets wafting on a spring breeze fill me with a healing sort of happiness. Lynn
Happiness is: What's coming just over that hill, around that corner, under that rock?
Let us keep cultivating moments, relationships, attitudes that truly make the difference and make us happy beings.
