What makes you the happiest...if you had to choose just one

What makes you happy and brings joy to your heart? If you had to choose just one thing what would it be?

I got this thread idea from Kenny's thread about what annoys you the most. So I am asking the opposite as I think it is a good thread for the holidays and might make us smile reading it. :wavey:

Climbing into my couch with my kids and husband with a huge blanket and turning on a movie. Maybe with nachos too... ;-)

That sounds cozy and delicious! :appl:

And similar to my happiest thing to do too. I love cozying up on the couch with my dh and the kitties all around us purring up a storm watching a good movie and eating popcorn. YAY for the simple pleasures in life. :appl:

Yeah...the simple things...

Watching a movie with DH and the kitties (who also will watch TV) is definitely tops.

HI:

Making a meal for my DH and adult son--who proceed to every bite and says "thank you, that was delicious!". Discussing our day over supper, having a joke and a good laugh, because my DH might do that ridiculous dance he does. :bigsmile: Then, they clean up.

cheers--Sharon

Sharing something (movie, music, meal, whatever) with DH and then talking about it.

The sounds of a bottle of wine opening.

Or riding down in our building's evaluator on a night it's just DH and I going out.

To me, both of those things signal a break between the work day or chores and the start of not stressing or thinking.

Going for a long peaceful walk with my husband - coming home and sharing a meal and a bottle of wine. Just the two of us! He's my BFF. :love: :appl:

Knowing that things are going well with my kids. I have a hard time enjoying other things when one of my kids is having problems.

I have to add another breaking my own one thing suggestion.

Waking up with my dh and our 4 kitties snuggling in bed and enjoying our coffee. This is my favorite time of day.

In spite of my love affair with jewelry (quoting Elizabeth Taylor),
I would also agree, nothing beats snuggling up with DH and the cats.
Preferably with something yummy baking in the oven!

This. Waking up with DH and our snuggly dog and enjoying morning beverages. Or lounging on the couch in the same fashion after work. We don't like to move very much. :lol:

My three fur babies, with their bright eyes, soft and shiny coats, and slightly plump bodies eating, playing, and generally having a good time makes me so happy that I adopted them and could give them this better life!

Adding another. Can't help it. My wonderful 13 year old son pacing me for a 8:24 mile for six miles. Running with him and introducing him to one of my favorite trails has been one of the best experiences ever.

Re: What makes you the happiest...if you had to choose just

My 3 year old daughter romping over to me or my husband and saying "mommy/daddy, I WUV YOU!" and then speeding away to play with a toy or game or color or whatever next catches her interest.

When any human being tells you they love you, it's kind of the highest compliment. To hear it from someone you've raised, worried over, fed, clothed, sheltered, it's a pretty amazing feeling, fleeting as it may be.

You know what? If I had to choose just one thing in the whole entire world, I'd say it is being told by someone that they love me. It's the nicest compliment anyone can pay you. No matter who it comes from, as long as it's said with sincerity. Being able to reciprocate and feeling the same way is probably #2.

To quote Jennifer Hudson's character, Louise, from the movie Sex and The City: "Love is the thing, you know?"
I think it truly does make the world go 'round.

Curling up with my doggies on their bed.
They love it too.

Yes, it's kept very clean.

Puppies are my #3. Love my Daisy dog, who helped save my sanity when I went through a dreadful time several years ago.

I love to look at others' dogs here. Thank you for sharing!

Re: What makes you the happiest...if you had to choose just

Looking at cute doggies makes me happy but the number one thing that makes me happy is the physical sensation that my body and my mind are in a perfect state of health, that nothing is wrong and I have the ability to have a day filled with accomplishment and joy.
