Are you happy?

4 years ago

Are you happy? 3 little words that ask so much. Happy - what does that mean? Who can say how another feels? Often I think that happiness is something I will never experience again, but then I remember little joys and realize I do experience "happy" it's just different now. What makes me happy these days? Spending time with my niece and nephew is always a joy, seeing old friends and supporting a good cause are both reasons to be happy. So I should just be so happy right now because I did all of those things this weekend. But yet, something is always missing, When you lose your child, there is always that little something gnawing at you, making you ache, reminding you things have changed. It's just enough to keep you from being happy.
