I am happy when I get paid. I am happy when it is Sunday and I go to church. When I buy a new dress, I am happy to put it on me.
I am happy when I speak English, and they know what I am talking about. I am very happy then.
On my way to work, I am happy to buy my breakfast to eat before I start work.
I am very happy because my son is going to have a new baby. I can’t wait to see what my baby girl is going to look like.
