Hmmm, what does happiness share with little nocturnal lizards?
In pursuit of happiness,
people drop jobs and marriages
to seek their elusive prey.
They may as well hunt night geckos
(found in southern states)
by scouring the bushes
To spot geckos,
those mottled alien-looking lizards
with translucent skin,
Simply turn a light on.
A porch light in spring or summer,
maybe a bathroom light.
Open the window and check the screen.
Go about your routine.
Before you know it,
a gecko or two will
come to feast on the tiny
insects attracted by the light.
In a similar way,
happiness feeds on the qualities
you are really pursuing--
Happiness is high on the food chain,
and will flit in to dine
on the sweet necter
of a loving life.

|very true Bess. Happiness is caring, character, responsibility, and charity too. But, it is more. It is love, romance, having a carefree night on the town dancing, and laughing with each other. Happiness, what a concept. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little den sister, Barbie
