    International Day of Happiness

    It was yesterday and I didn't realize it until later in the day. I wonder why we don't have International DAYS of happiness everyday?

    International Day of Happiness
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    ~All quotes by Leo Buscaglia

    I didn't notice either ..... was too busy being happy

    You are right - shouldn't it be a year of happiness, followed by a decade, followed by a century. Let's start a campaign

    BRING BACK HAPPINESS

    I SO agree!

    I think there is a happiness thread here somewhere...if I find it, I will resurrect it.

    I've got the refrain down now on to the rest. What a joyful song, impossible to think of anything but happiness with an immediately uplifted heart. What a GREAT find, Rosie!

    Re: International Day of Happiness

    I too love this song. Just for you, the lyrics

    KEN DODD HAPPINESS LYRICS
    Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess
    I thank the Lord I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    To me this world is a wonderful place
    And I'm the luckiest human in the whole human race
    I've got no silver and I've got no gold
    But I've got happiness in my soul

    Happiness to me is an ocean tide
    Or a sunset fading on a mountain side
    A big old heaven full of stars up above
    When I'm in the arms of the one I love

    Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess
    I thank the Lord that I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    Happiness is a field of grain
    Turning its face to the falling rain
    I can see it in the sunshine, I breathe it in the air
    Happiness happiness everywhere

    A wise old man told me one time
    Happiness is a frame of mind
    When you go to measuring my success
    Don't count my money count my happiness

    Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess
    I thank the Lord I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess
    I thank the Lord I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    Thank you, Rosie, it will be now easier to commit to memory.

    I notice my heart leaps for joy when I listen to that song.

    Beside the meaning behind the words I just love his voice. His records were hits in the late 1960's and 1970's.

    Here is another one...........

    Yes, he now joins the feeling I get when listening to Perry Como, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, and Bing Crosby. I also like the voice of Michael Buble.

    Do you know of Rod McKuen. He was master of the spoken song but was a Poet and Song writer. I shall put his most famous one here "Jean" which was the theme song for a movie called "The prime of Miss Brodie" which was a super film by the way and my other favourite "sleep warm".

    I also love "Arianne" but I cannot find it anywhere which is such a shame as my vinyl is now corrupted so I can no longer play it sob sob.

    His music touches me in a different way to all the others I like, which are also those you have listed
