happiness

While watching a VCD movie with my son, I remarked " The family ( in the movie ) is poor but happy. Son agreed with me. Then I asked him ,
1) Is our family happy?
2) Are we happy?
His answers to 1) Not really( Ha ha)
2) Not really ( Huh?)

So I asked what we could do to rectify question 2. He cited 3 things he could do to make me and his sister happier. I was impressed. He didn't say how the other family members could make him happy but what he could do instead to make others happy.
Now what can you do to make someone you care happier this season?

  • your son is very thoughtful & hao soon...

    Man always have this instinct in them to protect & provide and because of that, we often neglect our own needs.

    I think i'm the happiest when the people i love are happy. It is the most remarkable feeling one could ever experience.

    Cheers :)

  • His thoughtfulness most likely reflects you and/or your husband's trait. Good job. Tell him Auntie FireHorse proud of him.
