  1. I don’t remember where the quote came from, but I know I’ve been carrying it around for a long, long, long time. It goes something like this, “Happiness comes from within. No one can may you happy. You can make you happy.”

    I can write a book about happiness, Karen. It’s this ethereal state few come to know and many wish they could attain. Ha, maybe one day I will, in fact, write a book about it! 😉

    • This is a great quote, Jack. It certainly does ring a bell.
      A book about happiness – authored by Jack Flacco?! Consider it bought. 🙂

      Happy weekend! 🙂
