happiness is…

had a magnificent walk this afternoon and realized that i was really happy. what is happiness?

*   sun shining from a clear blue sky for the first time in months

*   the smell of freshly-cut grass

*   the feel of the breeze on my face and in my hair

*   the strength of my legs as they stride effortlessly

*   the thought of seeing my sister in 6 days

*   the thought of seeing my friend for the first time in 20 years in 6 days

*   the first sip of coffee every morning – nectar of the gods

*   the sweetness of my dog each and every day

*   talking to my sons (one 200 miles away, and the other 3,000 miles away) and realizing that they are healthy and pursuing their dreams

*   knowing that i have very good friends who’ve always got my back

*   having memories of my dear mother and father that make me smile more often than make me sad

*   talking to my brothers

*   creating special gifts – sussies – for my sister and the friends i will be retreating with soon

*   a cold, crisp glass (or two or three) of pinot grigio

this is by no means an exhaustive list, but one that i share from today.

may all of you find that there any things to be happy about each and every day.
