Happiness Is...

There are many prompts that we, as bloggers can use to stimulate us into action.  There's the Poetry Bus, Shadow Shot Sunday, Happiness Is....and many others if you really go searching. This is my Happiness essay. I'm not entering it in the competition because I have more than three photos.
Happiness is being able to hang from a tree to stretch out after a bike ride and not caring if your underpants show...
Happiness is buying lemonade at the end of a hot bike ride from cool dudes who are raising money for the poor people. 
Happiness is finding an art gallery in the back yard of someone living on a country road.
Happiness is coming home just in time to see your daughter get the phone call informing her she got a job after being unemployed for a year and a half.
Happiness is being able to go the country because your big sister drove 2 hours to come take care of your mother for 2 days.


  1. Happiness is.
    Thank you for sharing your happiness.

    Congrats to your daughter on getting that job!

    And I hope you have a lovely excursion.

  2. I find myself sniffling and wiping tears away - there is something deeply moving about all of those pictures and the words just tip me over.

    Many congratulations on your daughter finding a job!

  3. your post is what we need more often in our world. the "small" things make the world go around. the white panty-stretch, the horses in shadows, the sisters who are good daughters, the daughter who got good news and the writer who knows a blessing when she receives one.

  4. A sweet post and much for be happy about. And a big congrats to your daughter on landing the job. That's fantastic!

  5. Yay! That's a lot of good happiness! Congrats on your daughter's new job. As the wife of an unemployed man, I know that would be the most happy thing that could happen here.

  6. Happiness is sharing life with others .Great post.

  7. What a joyous post, thank you!

    And congratulations to your daughter on that job, I hope it's everything she wants it to be.

  8. Happiness is seeing your pictures today!

  10. Yea!! A job for M.A. How sweet it is. I'm so glad you could get away.
    I'm thinking of you.

  11. Happiness if reading your entries.
