Happiness Is…

four children laughing and smiling at camera

Have you ever seen the book called Happiness Is A Warm Puppy by Charles Schultz? I have an old beat-up copy from my childhood that I treasure. I was thinking about that phrase this week and started a list of things that complete it. You know. Just for fun, not deep philosophy of the universe or anything.

Happiness is…..

a bear hug from your child
sleeping in late on a Saturday morning
watching a family movie together
seeing your kids play happily together
hearing: “I love you Mom” (or Dad)
playing games as a family
watching your kids play sports
bedtime
a refrigerator covered with art projects
*and more…. what would you add to the list?
