Happiness is...

Your husband taking your car to work because his is in the shop and when he gets home he informs you that he not only filled up your gas tank, but also took care of your emissions testing on his lunch break. Sweet.

The love in marriage is the ability to delight in even the smallest things from what I've seen. (never been myself)

I'll never forget the look of happiness my mom would have when my dad would adjust the recliner back further to snooze and instead of hanging onto the remote, pass it to her so she could watch her shows (now: so she can play with the TiVo).

Or my Grandmom's favorite part of the day was that Grandpop always gave her that kiss on the cheek each morning and said 'love ya, hon' and then would putter off to do whatever.

Makes me jealous sometimes.

For someone not married, you've got a good grasp on it. It truly is all about appreciating little things, like a filled gas tank or a morning goodbye kiss. Love, acceptance and appreciation. That's really about all it takes.

But your mom is especially lucky... My husband tends to fall asleep on the couch watching TV and it takes me forever to find where he's stashed the remote!

I credit a lot of experience watching from the outside and talking to those I know who are married.

Leaving so you can watch TSCC is definitely sweeter than, say, changing the channel and hiding the remote from you or something. I'd say he's a keeper ;)
