This week's Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily post at wordpress.com is "Happy"

Wow, the great challenges keep on coming. Here we have another soul-searching one. This challenge makes me "happy" because I get to talk about one of my favorite subjects: My daughter.

Finding what makes me happy was easy, picking was hard. There are lot's of little things that make me happy, day to day, hour to hour, but I wanted to pick a more substantial, less fleeting happy.

As we wonder into adulthood we soon realize that happiness is something we have to choose. It rarely arrives on it's own. And when we choose it, it's scheduled and compartmentalized. After it's over, we go back to worrying about life's stuff, and start planning for the next happy fix.

Children don't have that problem because they have an ingredient in their happiness that we adults lack: Carefree. So when I want more fulfilling, longer-lasting happiness I enter my daughters' world. That's not hard to do because her world is an ever-expanding, chatter-filled, happy little place. I spend as much time as I can with her and I really listen to what she has to say. I participate in her interests and I create new ones. I pass on my love for certain activities and through her they get renewed. I teach her life, she teaches me how to see…

Happiness: Watching my daughter grow and blossom. There is no greater joy I could ever want...
