Happiness is...

For me, it has always been the simple things that make me happy. Hearing my son's voice or eating a slice of cheesecake.

But today, it was something very simple--a  new pen. Actually four of them. 

Good pens always make a writing assignment so much better!

I am on a new medication, which coupled with long work hours and fighting off yet another cold, makes me exhausted. Money is tight but getting those pens were worth it. Happiness is... a  new pen.
