Back in my old chefing days we always had a question of the day to get the energy going in the kitchen and between the front and back of the house. One of the best was what makes you happy. It was interesting how difficult this q was for some folks to answer. Some answers were complicated, "world peace", "being in love"...but some were really simple, "finding a cold beer in the fridge"....So I was wondering if for the folks who come here.... What makes you happy?

Hmmmmm... this is a good one! There are so many things that are simple that we overlook without thinking that these things make us happy without realizing What makes me happy not in this exact order :) 1. A cool drink on a hot day 2. Waking up annoyed cause my baby's belly squashed me at night (LOL) mmmmmmmm....;) 3. Having the ability to create something that will cause an effect on someones life eg. art, poetry, a smile 4. Keeping warm on a cold night 5. Being a mommy that needs a break (tired out!!!!) 6. Having friends 7. Leaving my favorite lipstick in the car and finding it without it being melted 8. Living close to my parents 9. Living far enough from my parents ;) 10. Waking up every morning and realizing that I love myself :)

I love this selection, thanks ! I find that happiness, as demonstrated here, is unique to everyone. I've also found that some are very happy making life miserable for others. I'll never understand that one but this is what makes me happy. Not in order of priority, just as I thought of the very thing that makes me happy. 1] The little things in life, for instance, someone remembering that I like no ice in my drinks. 2] Finding money in my pocket 3] A surprise phone call 4] Finding a wonderful outfit within the first ten minutes 5] Having an agenda for work and actually getting to it all. 6] Most of all I'm happy that I moved to Florida, found a fantastic job that I love and I was able to buy a home that I love. Life is good to me. Thanks for the forum ;-) Natalie 32132

Lozness - love your pic and your spunk. Dancing in the rain barefoot definitely make me happy - provided there's no lighting. I love cooking for my firends and family and then having a long lazy afternoon and evening of conversation, dirnk and great food. And Bizz Bizz Bizz - quite the ladies man in you college days huh? Should have guessed as much. Wondering what it means if at you forget the name of the person you wake up next too after middle age? hummm??

Silly boy, what no hamsters or woodchucks? Or *gasp* spotted owls.....crunchy little bones and a head dress of their feathers? You are so bad. If I did not already know exactly what makes you happy I might very well be offended. ;-)

Yall are awesome and all very true to form. Carmel with sweetness, Amuse with wit, glimpse' of her tender underbelly and the ever present challenges of being a mom, Lazy - clearly smart and always bringing it back to his prime objective to scratch his itch, and then fun Bizz mending his heart and taunting with well placed quips - and all the other lovely small and complex ways we find happiness...Water sports at age 62? didn't see that coming but whatever floats your boat....Can't wait to see what else might pop up here....

There are so many things that make me happy that it hard to cubbyhole them into a small list...but a few include - sunshine/sunsets and bodies of water (lake, ocean, babbling brook) - song on the radio/cd that makes me smile or sing along - humour (good joke or something that makes me smirk/smile or laugh) - unexpected "tea" delivered - unexpected use of car or a ride (I usually take the bus) - job well done by me or others - time with friends/family - good health and - my family getting along well ( living in harmony with little tension ) Some people in life are happy and find the best in things while others are not and can find no right. Some people do get dealt more than I can imagine dealing with at times. I try to share my smiles. :)

I find, having two demon spawn for children not to mention an 18 year old neice living with me, that a nice, quiet, peaceful, cooperative morning puts a wonderful spring in my step. lol! Hot baths, back rubs, foot massages.. toe.. nevermind. lol Sunshine, pretty sunsets... etc.
