IBQ Writing Prompt: What is Happiness?

This week’s prompt is: What is happiness? Chris’ note:  I swore up and down that I’d give you nothing but easy prompts from now on, so I thought I’d give you “happy”?  What could be easier, right?  As I thought about what I would write about “happy”, I found out that it wasn’t nearly as…
