This is a life-affirming thread that's for everyone who's happy and who wants to share his happiness with the world.   [Disclaimer: Reading this thread may cause feelings of sappiness.]

What are some of the reasons that you are happy?

I'll start: I'm happy that I live in a country where I can watch the Superbowl, or not. Or go to get a gourmet meal, or drive anywhere I want, or post anything I want on the Internet.

I'm happy that the West is so advanced, that we have friends in the East, and that the chances of war with countries other than Iran or North Korea are rather low.

I'm happy that I can track the progress of our dozens of space probes from NASA and ESA, and that we know more about the universe than ever before.

I'm happy that science is still rational, as opposed to politicized.

Most of all, I'm happy because of my family and friends and all the love, friendship, and support they provide.

Raindrops on roses,
And whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles
And warm woolen mittens.
Brown paper packages
Tied up with string,

Cream colored ponies,
And crisp apple strudel.
Doorbells and sleighbells
And schnitzel with noodles,
Wild geese that fly
With the moon on their wings,

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
Silver white winters that melt into springs

My wonderful boyfriend who does everything in his power to support him now where I really need it... any other guy would've left me looooong ago  Silly

My great family... absolutely lovely "fur babies" (pets)- the fact that I kicked my own behind and got my first job just a week ago after being unable to work since 2002 (won't be hired before the 16th though  Smile)... and just generally life itself... all's gooood!

Pets sure are fun to have. They're almost like people, except they don't pay rent.

 Big grin

Seriously, though -- I'm glad you have so much going for you.
