    I just told uninvitedwriter that working makes me happy & I'm a 24/7 type. (I work from home though & spend lots of time with fam) Sometimes I even wish I could go without sleep; I hate missing a single moment of life.

    Mine is a bit wierd, but what makes you happy?

      OMG I have felt that exact way sooooooooooooo many times!!!!! I hate missing a single moment and that's part of the reason, I think I have such a problem with insomnia!!!!! 

      What makes me happiest:  Spending time with my three sons, who live 1,500 miles away now....:-( the distance makes me sad...the time I get to spend with them, when I can...is DIVINE!!!! 
      And, spending every moment I can with my loving husband!!!
      Oh yah, my critters (70+) on our farm, sure makes me smile too!!!!

    To see people that are happy ... like kids playing a pool game called Marco... Polo... I don't have a clue what it means but they sound so happy playing it.

    Some days that have a softness to them and you don't know why ... the softness and its transient nature ...

    To do something with a friend ... have a cup of tea, try to find something we need, whatever.

    To give a hand to somebody.

    To see members of my family.

    To sit together with mdh in some simple cyber cafe and read or write away a whole afternoon ... the same we do at home but in a different environment.

    To stroll through a park with same.

    To be in a Forum and realize that people are not fighting ... at least not yet.

    And many variegated etc.

        I too enjoy happiness with simple things in life including what has been written by Colebabie above.

        I enjoy my work and anything I do and don't expect much as they naturally come to me.

    A great cup of coffee in the morning brought by someone other than myself. My dogs gaining the ability to feed themselves and open the doors to go relieve on their own. Having not to worry about retirement and having the funds to do what has been dreams.

              Microwaves are the way to go, great for hiding plates in there in a hurry if your kitchen is a mess and you want it to look nice for special guests.

    I think the greatest happiness I derive is from making others happy around me. Without doubt. There is something magical in giving, that lights you up inside, that no money can buy.
