Happiness is.....

“Happiness is two kinds of ice cream, finding your skate key, telling the time. Happiness is learning to whistle, tying your shoe for the very first time….”

Simple words. Simple music. Brought me back to childhood, when life was much easier. Very simple. We found happiness in so many very simple things. The memory of the simplicity of my childhood was touching me. What a beautiful song sung by Lea Salonga and his brother Gerard Salonga.

Then it reminds me to so many simple yet beautiful things in life that we sometimes forget to be grateful at. The burden of our adulthood sometimes weighs me in some ways. They keep hurting in many ways we can’t escape.

May we won’t forget how to be happy for all those beautiful things we have in life. Simple laughs, chit-chat with friends, playful times, simple achievements, getting something we dreamed of since we’re small, old friends, new friends, co-workers, neighbors, enemies, brothers, sisters, parents, all who have brought smile in our life. :-)

Here’s the lyrics of the song…

HAPPINESS
by Clark Gesner
from " You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown

Lea:
You know some kids ask us what happiness really is.
Well, to me happiness is a hamburger, going to the movies, new clothes.
Well, what's your happiness, gerard?

Gerard:
My happiness is a hotdog sandwich, new rubber shoes, new t-shirts,
New jeans and also my favorite part of happiness is love.

Lea:
Happiness is two kinds of ice cream
Finding your skate key, telling the time
Happiness is learning to whistle
Tying your shoe for the very first time
Happiness is playing the drum in your own school band
And happiness is walking hand in hand

Gerard:
Happiness is five different crayons
Knowing a secret, climbing a tree
Happiness is finding a nickel
Catching a firefly, setting him free
Happiness is being alone every now and then
And happiness is coming home again

Lea:
Happiness is morning and evening

Gerard:
Daytime and nighttime, too

Both:
For happiness is anyone and anything at all
That's loved by you

Gerard:
Happiness is having a sister

Lea:
Sharing a sandwich

Both:
Getting along
Happiness is singing together when day is through
And happiness is those who sing with you

Happiness is morning and evening
Daytime and nighttime, too
For happiness is anyone and anything at all
That's loved by you
