What makes you happy?

When we were children, we were entertained by the simplest of things, like chasing each other around. We would squeal and laugh with delight. Now that we are adults, our entertainment has changed into much more sophisticated sources. What is it that makes you the happiest?

As it happens, tomorrow Liz will be home from a 2 week pet-sitting. Our roommate, Mark, got home yesterday afternoon from a month long hospital stay and yes, their being back will be happy time. Its been a bit of a haul literally taking care of everything..cats, Sammie (parrot), ME, work, bills, groceries, banking..well, you get the point.. Tho I won't be here when Liz finally gets home tomorrow (side job stuff) she will be welcomed by a bed full of stuff..I hadn't gotten either of them anything for quite a bit and it seemed like the right time to splurge a bit with some things that the both of them like and I know they will enjoy sorting thru and claiming various of the 'things' gotten. That's what makes me happiest, not just with them, but with a whole array of folks (when I can) enjoying the 'treasures' that make them happy when I can give them..

I guess you are right and today when we have grown up things are just so much more complicated and also life itself. For me, what really makes me happy is that I can work a little and yet earn a living to support my family and being around with my daughter and my wife spending the day peacefully and full of laughter and joy.
