What makes you happy?

What makes you happy in life? Is it friends? Family? Money? Writing? Reading? Finding your true love? My kids have made me the happiest. I couldn't imagine life without them.

Excellent question! Many things at different time can bring me intense joy... A good example of a "double-edged sword" is that I love a healthy debate... unless I'm tired in which case, it annoys me... Chocolate, for another example... Great! ...but you can overdose and sometimes if you're stomach's unwell, it's the LAST thing you want... but when you do, BOY HOWDY! Fall colours, great! Raking leaves sucks. A weird one for me, as a city-dweller, is the smell of diesel exhaust... it reminds me of "home", but in large quantities or when I am home, UGH! (...and a headache!) You mentioned your kids... I have step-kids and yes, they too bring me great joy... and tremendous pain too. What's the old saying? Every ounce of pleasure is paid for with a pound of pain!
