That's the title of the January 8th entry in Sarah Ban Breathnach's book Simple Abundance.
There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world. Robert Louis Stevenson
She goes on to say, "... the magic seeds of contentment are planted deep within us. Happiness that the world cannot take away only flourishes in the secret garden of our souls. By tending to our inner garden and uprooting the weeds of external expectations, we can nurture our authentic happiness the way we would nuture something that's beautiful and alive. Happiness is a living emotion."

Both my boys are participating in a Winter Concert at school tonight. Yusef playing the trombone and Zack on the saxophone. Time to get ready.
I hope you are having a happy day. Friendship blessings, Tammy
P.S. "P" is for Petunias. I knew yesterday's flowers started with a "p" but I could only think of pansies at the time. :)
