I love this discussion and I want to participate in it! The ten things that make me happy are.... 1)When my hubby is happy because his mood has an effect on me. 2)Seeing my son happy because the happy expressions on his face is priceless. 3)Smoking because it relaxes me 4)Crocheting because when I'm bored I have something to do and it takes me away into a hypnosis state where I can think about things and it also de-stresses me. 5)Summertime because it brings me a warm fuzzy free feeling 6)Being online because this means I can chat with friends and family through MSN, emails, or mylot 7)My cats because they are my best friends and I can trust them 8)Being with my mom because I love the feeling of acceptance. 9)Working because it gets me out of the house. 10)Taking pictures because it gives me a reminder of my memories.

1. Life, itself, makes me happy--just the fact that I was born and am experiencing this God-given gift. 2. My faith makes me happy--it's an infinite hug from God! 3. Spending time with family and friends makes me happy--just because it's nice to connect with wonderful people. 4. Being able to write something that makes a positive difference--whether it's to change the world or simply elicit a chuckle from someone. 5. A beautiful landscape makes me happy--which can be anything from trees in blossom to a sunrise/sunset, to the moon and stars, to mountains/hills/valleys, to beautiful rivers, to beaches, to changes in the weather, to manmade things such as houses and those who inhabit them. 6. Taking pictures of #5 makes me happy, because I preserve these glimpses of beauty. 7. Cute critters make me happy. There's nothing like watching raccoons snacking on what I toss to them, families of Canada geese walking along the side of a backroad, seagulls flying around and competing for the bread I toss up to them, a fluffy nest of downy ducklings, etc. And they also get plenty of the #6 treatment from me. 8. Observing and/or cuddling human babies also makes me happy. They're so soft and trusting--and a smile from one of them just melts me. If that smile also comes with a cute little giggle and coo, I melt even more. 9. Hearing good news about how Invisible Youth Network ( http://www.freewebs.com/invisibleyouth ) has just received a donation always makes me happy--as does thinking about that wonderful guy who founded it: Russell T. Hartsaw. 10. Lots of other things too numerous to mention make me happy--as I said at the first, life, itself, makes me happy!

Well this discussion really made me think! But it is summer and that itself makes me feel good so.... (1) A warm day with a cool breeze (2) The smell of summer- blooming flowers, fresh cut grass (3) The feeling of being close to a child and the happiness and contentment that comes with it (4) Feeling good after doing exercise, and happy in your own skin! (5) Being in love and completely trusting somebody (6) The feeling of being admired, and looked at (hehe) (7) The feel of water and being free to swim (8) The warm feeling of a baby animal in your arms (9) A beautiful baby in your arms (10) hmm.. A walk outside in the cool nature, where you feel completely away from everyday troubles!

1. first thingthat made me happy was the bird singing outside my window 2. the second is the cypress trees swaying in the breeze 3. the sunshine against a soft blue sky 4. fluffy white clouds sailing across the sky 5. a soft scented breeze coming into my bedroom window 6. big yellow blossoms on a vine climbing up the cypress trees 7. sound of children's laughter coming in from my window 8. a horde of wild parrots that just settled in those trees 9.my fingers doing just what I told them to do while I am typing 10 watching the neighborhood scrounger old Mr Possum waddle out of my patio when i go to get my paper. he has become a fixture around here and a loveable sneaky thief who tears open plastic sacks of garbage looking for some meat. He looks old as the hills.

It has been awhile since I have thought about what makes me happy and is free. Not much is free anymore. I'll give it a try though... 1.)The sun shining on my shoulders. My late mother loved the sun and when I feel it on my shoulders I feel her warmth. 2.)The sound of my hubby sleeping soundly next to me in the night. That makes me happy, to know that he is beside me and always will be. 3.)My cats purr as they sleep on top of me. They keep me warm and I know they will always love me unconditionally. 4.)A friends visit. It is always good to have friends and just sitting and talking with a friend makes me happy. 5.)The feel of a green lawn beneath my bare feet. There just is no better feeling than being barefoot on green grass. 6.)Climbing a mountain. Well actually not climbing the mountain but reaching the top of a mountain. Nothing quite captures the feeling of being so high you can look down on the birds. 7.)Watching my garden grow. It always makes me so happy when something I have planted actually sprouts and grows into a beautiful flower. 8.)Sitting on a park bench and watching the people. I love to people watch and can spend many a happy hour just watching. 9.)Sleeping outside under the bright summer stars. 10.)coming up with ten things that are actually free. Thanks for the post it made me actually have to think!
