20 Ways to Increase Happiness

My wife and I were apart for eight months during the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic. She was in China, having returned for her father’s funeral, and I was here in the US. After the horrible winter, I began preparing our garden to put my mind at ease. I wanted to do something special for my wife when she returned. Because I did not know when she would return, I planted native flowers around the garden. As they bloomed, I smiled knowing how happy she would be to see the beautiful blossoms. We are still enjoying the blooming beauty. I will continue to dedicate myself to having a happy life together.
