Happiness is defined as a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy. Happiness is all around us, yet sometimes feeling true happiness seems hard to acheive. Buying new shoes or clothes, eating your favorite meal, snuggling with a loved one bring me happiness. I bought our dog a new "duck" toy which he loves. It brings him happiness I think. Our daughter finds happiness in playing dress-up, and spinning around and singing. I thinking our son finds happiness in playing football.
