  13. The branches of trees in summer, heavy with fruits, delightfully swaying with summer breeze.
    May your summer branches always be heavy with Your Happiness…

  19. Woohoo! Are the kids coming home for a visit or is this a general happy statement? Adding my one more – remembering all that makes me happy when I don’t feel like it.

  20. I was just thinking specifically about Miami. There is a hybrid hostel, Freehand Miami, that I love and it’s one of my happy places. My dad passed on the 14th in Maine and it was a steel blue cold day. I need Miami and it’s hustle, soft warm sand, raspberry blue water, and old men in t-shirts, sitting on stoops, holding small dogs, loving their breathing, heart beating lives.

  21. Happiness is this delightful list, which made me smile and nod. I’ll add another (and my wish for you…) “Happiness is puppy breath.” Enjoy your time with Rachel, pal!

    Happiness…watching snow falling softly, silently, covering the firs, preparing them for midwinter’s dance…(sigh)…a beautiful calm, before the storm.
    Thank you Dave, for the reminder to stop and ‘smell the roses’!

  29. OMG! So many shared happinesses. There are likely many, many more, creating such a lovely endless venn diagram – makes my heart race thinking of it. And reading everyone’s comments is such an added treat.
    Most of all, the last line, because there is nothing like the happy energy our children bring when they come home.
