On Happiness

By Marie Sainta Desravines

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.
