International Day of Happiness, Flowers and The Sea

20 Mar

It is the International Day of Happiness and I wish you all the happiness that you seek. I have my good friend Valerie to thank for serendipitously giving me this quotation at the weekend.

I don’t believe there was ever anybody who loved being happy as much as I did. What I mean is that I was so acutely conscious of being happy, so appreciative of it; that I wasn’t ever bored, and was always and continuously grateful for the whole delicious loveliness of the world.”

Elizabeth von Arnim. Author of Elizabeth and her German Garden

My happiness is found in my family, with friends, in creating stuff, in singing and in nature – indeed in the “whole delicious loveliness of the world.”
