Let me know which is your favorite.

WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge had me shifting through my photographs for a few of life’s happiest moments: traveling with my grandchildren, viewing autumn flowers, and watching sunsets. While there are scores of other treasures that bring happiness into my days, these are a sample.

To be happy is a state of varying degrees of pleasure. Sometimes the simplest of moments can be the happy memory to cradle.

Sometimes the largest of moments can keep the happy alive endlessly. For example, seeing my grandchildren’s expressions as they learn the joys of photography.

Note: As always I welcome any comment about this post or any part of my blog.

    Sally,
    The other photos are, as usual, very good and much appreciated. However, sharing the photo of your grand children at this time of wonder and learning new things is a special gift.
    Thank you for sharing and by doing so, rekindling precious memories..

  10. The rays emiting through the clouds, appear to me, as if the sun is a flower in bloom. A really pretty photograph.

    i like the last picture. I always liked the sunset.

    If they were my grandchildren, I would surely pick the first one. Not having the emotional connnection with the people, the flower shot wins my vote. They are all great photos though.

    Love this little series… Happiness is, of course, mostly subjective – we all have different things that bring us happiness!
