"Happiness is celebrating the little things"..in life.
That 'Promises Message' quote came from a small package of a chocolate named "Dove" given by smf over lunch and a Tootsie roll (a childhood favorite!). I never noticed it until smf said there's a saying in it. She said it's true for me. I wonder what she is trying to say. But eventually it sinked it. Yes, it's true! Little things like a smile on someone's face can brighten our day, a kiss, a word of appreciation, a thank you, a sorry, a hug, friendships, family, doing our favorite past time, simple chit-chat with our love ones and having God as the center of our life. Most of the time, these simple gestures are much easily taken for granted because it just passes away easily. We never thought about it until the other one died or because they've hurt you. Even if they've left, the memory of them makes us happy enough. I believe that money and material things are just secondary to our so-called happiness. It's temporary. What matters is the simple things that come from who and what is around us. Everyday that we wake up is already a gift that comes from our God. That is Happiness!
