Hapiness Is...

going to the store and having a sub made fresh, just the way I like it (fresh, soft sub bread, deli mustard, Boar’s Head salami and BBQ basted chicken, sharp cheddar cheese, lettuce, banana pepper, onion, jalapenos, oil, salt, pepper and vinegar) and then chowing down on it in the car and not caring who can see you.

Happiness is…

having a little one run into your arms at the end of a hard day

chocolate whipped cream

cuddling up with someone you love

fireplaces and warm red wine on a cold night

wow… there are so many

We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by
embracing one another

the answer. I, however, do not like to eliminate the impossible.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it that the merely improbable lacks.”
