Did you know March 20 was The United Nations International Day of Happiness ?
I didn’t – which is weird because for me
..happiness is a big deal.
I am lucky in my family – we are a pretty silly, joyful bunch – I have strong memories of my grandparents and parents goofing around, wearing wigs and dancing, blowing bubbles, having water fights and generally having a rare old time, whenever we got together.
I also remember that during the hard times my dad would remind us how the situation wasn’t permanent and things would get better – he also taught me to always be optimistic and look look on the bright side.
