** HAPPINESS 101 **

My blogger friend, Daisy, recently posted this meme and invited anyone who was interested to accept the tag and name 10 things that make them happy. This is the first time I've done one of these, and I even had to look up the definition of "meme". Sounds way too scientific to me! But I get the idea. Just "keep it going"!

So, I'll do this the way Daisy did. I'm not going to "tag" any particular people. If you'd like to join along, just grab this photo and post it on your blog. Then write the 10 Things That Make You Happy. Daisy wrote hers in a poem. She's so talented! She's on my Blog List, so check out her lovely blog, "Dancing With Daisy".

I have one thing to add and this is not a "rule", it's just a thought I had. Since most of us would say our family and/or friends, and name specific people, I'm not going to use such generaliztions. Since I have hundreds of things that make me happy, I shouldn't have a problem with this!

1. Writing
2. Laughing
3. Dancing
4. Singing
5. Reading
6. Candles burning
7. Learning
8. Chirping birds
9. Walking on my trail
10. My dog, Tiger (especially watching her let out a heavy sigh, while laying on her quilt)

Okay, there's my Happines 101 List! If you'd like to write about the things that make you happy and continue this meme, please consider yourself tagged and take the logo back with you to post on your blog.
