Happy International Day of Happiness!

I love the thought of an International Day of Happiness,
and have been holding onto that idea, and returning
to it all day.  Today has been a full day, on many fronts
-- both work and family worries.  Thinking about happiness
I went searching for a painting that I don't think if I've shown
to you yet, and here it is.

It's a painting of my son Sam when he was younger, and
appropriate for the first day of spring.  It was cold
today, but the sound of the birds singing filled the air --
a sound we've missed all winter.  Clearly in this painting
my son is sitting on our back porch,  in what looks
like spring -- holding a piece of fruit. And a lovely cardinal
has come to investigate.

We do have cardinals coming to our bird feeder and they
are a gorgeous sight.

Happy International Day of Happiness, and Happy Spring.
Let's keep the happy thoughts coming.  They are the best.

Have an enjoying-the-new-spring day.
