There are many ways to be happy, but one I find particularly easy is the goofy grin of a puppy. Sometimes I may be out of sync with the present, busy running about doing chores or worried about things gone past and things to come. Emma and Jack help break those thoughts as I can look at them and not help but smile. They may add to the stress but overall I think they improve my life and wellbeing.
Bringing a smile to my lips as I see them playing keep away in the yard, sleeping half out the bed, or just those adoring eyes peering up at me.
