    I have new stuff to add to my happy list.
    The sun coming out of the fog early in the morning. The way it makes everything sparkle, and soft. waking up to 6 new comments of kindness and caring on a silly hub. Watching chickens bock around, scratching for bugs in the dirt and get all fluffy when its cold. That feeling you get when you find out your not the only one, someone else thinks it too. when your child's fever breaks in the middle of the night and you know they are going to be ok.
    life.

    Oh there's a million ways for  me to be happy! Dancing with my lover, the kiss of moonlight on a calm summer night. The sight of shooting stars in a black sky filled with pin pricks of starlight. Catching that perfect wave warm white sand between my toes, hooking that unexpected big one on a fly cast blindly into emerald waters. A fresh fruit daiquiri some rocking blues singer sharing that experience of heartbreak and finding a new love! OMG! I could go on and on! Life, life makes me happy and sure there are those moments we'd all wish didn't happen those times we'd like to forget but those are the times that put everything into context and allow us the pleasures of the simple things to put a smile on our face. The sweet scent of the rose, the company of good friends, a silly joke, or a flirtatious innuendo, ah I'd like to have some of that right now!
