HAPPINESS

Marie Toole HAPPINESS

HAPPINESS By Marie Toole Everyone has their own definition of happiness and what it would take to make them happy. Maybe for some, it’s fame, wealth,  big homes and fancy cars, while to another it would be love, health, and serenity. I remember bolts of happiness when I fell in love, and when I held my newborn baby. They were delicious and indescribable moments that I treasure.
