Life is short.... Occasionally bend the rules.... Forgive quickly.... Kiss slowly.... Love truly.... Laugh uncontrollably.... And, never regret anything that made you smile....

Happiness Is.

This is a happy post as a tribute to the beautiful little Lily who had to leave us last night... She was a tiny little  poppet who bought us so much joy, so this is for her....

Happiness is......

The smell of fresh washing drying in front of the fire.

The smell of freshly baking bread.

A visit from special people.

The smell of freshly mown grass.

The aroma which comes from making tomato sauce.

Driving in the car on a cold day, on a picnic.

A country sunset.

Discovering mushrooms after an autumn rain.

A hug from loved ones.

Home made biscuits.

Fresh sheets on the bed.

A fabric stash.

A cuddle from a special pet.

That first sight of the sea when you are going on holidays.

Home made pizza.

    The best thing about your happiness post is you don't need money for lots of them. We only have to look around us and find happiness.
    happy days.
