Well put, Jon. There is happiness in those things. Actually, as I get older (another birthday tomorrow, actually), I tend do think those things are where the real happiness lives. I derive an immense amount of happiness from a really good ice cream cone with my wife and daughter. I truly fee a warm fulfillment in trimming the hedges really neatly. These small things are actually really big, but only if you allow them to be.
