Happiness is When….



Happiness is when

you find some rice

in the rice bin you thought was empty

and you know you’re all right

for another month

Happiness is when

you’re reading along

aimlessly in a book

and come on someone

exactly like yourself

Happiness is when

you’re sick of reading a book

and just then

someone with a familiar voice

knocks at your gate

Happiness is when

you’ve got some passage

that is supposed to be so difficult

and all by yourself

you figure out the meaning

Happiness is when

sunset finds you in some country temple

or mountain village

and they say “Stay the night!”

and you do

Tachibana Akemi (1812-1869)

This is another repost family, but in this time  for us to reflect on our many blessings,

Let this be your invitation to “Stay the night!” – Be happy

Peace
