“It is only a slight exaggeration to say that happiness is the experience of spending time with people you love and who love you.”
–Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Laureate
Gifts and giving. We associate so much of that with happiness. Yet our one true Happiness is Loving Others.
Oh, that sweet presence to just be around those we cherish and feel at home with!
