I felt pure joy with my precious Suzy as I often do. I know there is also positive thinking but it's not the same thing I am talking about.
    Dogs are pure love, a gift from God.



    But yea, happiness isn't(for me, for alot of people) something that can be sustainable constantly, just comes along either externally, or when you reach out and get some.

    There was a guy we used to play handball with at the YMCA. He was an organized fellow. Everything in place. Even hung up his pants in his locker and his shirt.

    One day he was asleep and my friend asked me "How can he be so happy all the time?"

    I said. "He knows where all the nuts are buried".

    Later on in life, his wife died. He was devastated. He died shortly after.
