Daily Prompt: Happy Happy Joy Joy

What does happiness look like to you?

Happy is a freshly-baked batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

It’s the smiling face of my husband as he rolls out of the recovery room.

Happy are the faces of all the people I love.

It is also the smile on the face of a friend battling cancer, who has a “feel-good”  day.

It can be a sunny day or a snow day or even a rainy day.  It depends on what you need.

Happy is a messy house filled with grandchildren.

Happy is a clean house when they are gone.

Happy is completing a task.   Happiness is starting a new task.

Happy is working in a career you love for many years.

Happy is retirement.

Happy is an abundant harvest.

Happy is a soaking rain, when the earth is dry.

Happy is a good night’s sleep.

It is the voice of a friend you haven’t seen in awhile.
