Weekly Photo Challenge: Happiness

by tableofcolors

This post is not a traditional post. It is a gallery of happiness. When I think of happiness, I think of kids. They are genuine and they often see the joy in the little details of life. I heard on the radio a little while back that children laugh 300 times a day and adults only 4. Whether this number is actually true I’m not sure but I’m quite sure kids laugh a lot more than adults. And laughter is contagious. I think I laugh more now than I did before I had kids.

I am prone to rushing about and being or appearing to be busy. Sometimes the little ones stop me and tell me, “Now you can take pictures of us” as they did the time I took the balloon photographs. My camera slows me down too, to notice a moment or a little detail that I might have missed otherwise. Maybe that is why I enjoy blogging so much is that I stop to enjoy the moment on hand and share it with others.

Enjoy these photos of summers passed and hopefully they will bring a smile to your day.
