Oct. 4 - 'Tis a Gift to be Simple -

I have had a beautiful week. I am so very fortunate, in so many ways, and I have tried to stay close to the simplicity of these blessings the past few days. Blessings such as: solid warm/cool home, home that is easy to clean, home with great windows, home furnished just the way I like, home that smells good, working appliances, things to put in these working appliances, purple flowers on my table, orange pumpkins on my porch, a bountiful garden, a deck that has entertained many people and provided me with a morning meditation spot, a comfy bed (last year at this time we were purchasing twin beds to make it through chemo; we traded those for a lovely king when radiation was finished), an Alaskan bathroom, art on every single wall and on every shelf and flat space, a library filled with favorites, a home that can handle nicks and bumps and scratches and scuffs, and my list goes on. When it comes to "home," I want for nothing.

Happiness is -

With this in mind (and because of the conversation I had with the angry lady on Monday - see my FB post), these questions have been mulling around, so I'm asking:

What makes you happy?
What do you do to be happy? 
What brings you happiness?
How do you cultivate happiness?
How do you get through your day?
What makes you smile?
When was the last time you laughed out loud?
