happiness is..
knowing that i can walk, even with crutches,
and that whatever i do often inspires and touches!

happiness is..
having the time to play baseball or video games,
and knowing that my life is no longer the same!

happiness is.
getting presents from santa claus;
i just know it is daddy..why? well, just because!

happiness is..
not being ashamed of who i am,
and getting to eat fried eggs and baked ham!

happiness is..
knowing the lord jesus christ as lord,
and knowing that he'll keep our lives in one accord.

anh kim:
happiness is..
having the love of each other,
be it my parents, or my sisters or brothers!

jodie (written by her mother):
happiness is..
being held by my loving mommy and daddy,
and knowing that i am a part of their family.

happiness is..
having a home to come to,
no matter what we may be going through!

happiness is..
my kitty and my dollies,
and happiness is my toys..oh, golly!!

happiness is..
coloring in my crayon books,
and toys coming to the stores, as i like to look!

happiness is..
knowing that i am accepted and loved;
and knowing that feels so good, just like a glove!!

tri (as told by his mommy):
happiness is..
turkey and stuffing on turkey day,
and that all day, after we eat, we all get to play!!

happiness is..
all of my brothers and sisters;
and riding my bike until my hands get blisters!

happiness is:
getting a gold medal at a gymnastics meet,
and signing autographs afterwards; that is so neat!!

happiness is:
having a good job where i can meet people all day,
and spending time at our church every sunday!!

mai lee and pu li kwan (in unison):
happiness is:
having a twin sister we can always turn to
whenever one of us is feeling all sad or blue!

happiness is:
being to play a country song on my fiddle,
and listening to people cheer and giggle!

louisiana (mother):
happiness is:
knowing that god has blessed us with this brood;
they are bound to help us overcome any bad mood!

bill (father):
happiness is:
knowing that someday we'll meet god face to face,
because his son gave all of us his saving grace!!

this was what some of the family members said when they were asked what they felt what "happiness" meant to them.
