recipe for happiness...

Listening to the radio the other morning I came across a recipe for happiness which included a daily dose of 20 minutes of silence, 5 hugs, 6 minutes of reading and a prescription to laugh and be active.  When placed on top of food and a decent night's sleep I thought that these ingredients would go a long was to making me happy although I would swap some silence for more hugs.

With this family we managed all but the reading and silence, in fact to be honest I am not sure they ever manage the silence they are so busy laughing.  I came away from this session with my cheeks aching and my mood lifted.

Looking at the resulting photos afterwards I thought Audrey Hepburn was right when she said "I think that happy girls are the prettiest girls".

I wish you all a happy day with lots to smile about.
