happymess

a question
old as the hills

happy

what does it mean?

happiness is…

a warm puppy?
a warm gun?
to know the Savior?
living a life that’s worth His favor?

failing to see a common thread,
I waver.

and when it seems too hard to see
etymology works for me

in word origins (not insects)
heart’s true meaning my mind detects

Middle English – hap

lucky
favored
by fortune,
being in
advantageous circumstances

happiness is…
feeling lucky

that explains a lot.

Everyone wants to be happy
I guess
that’s why so many play the lottery.

and why I don’t.
