I like number one because of all the blessings in my life!

Reposting this fun list of happiness facts today:
Apparently I’m one of the crowd. I especially like 7 & 8. Also the one about blind people smiling is awesome. My aunt who is blind has one of the brightest smiles of anyone I know, especially when she sings. She was always asked to sing often, and I think it was as much for her glowing spirit as her voice.
What an amazing story. Thanks for sharing!
#7 for me – that is just too cute 😉. Thx for sharing.
#6 made me lol. Hang out with cats and kittens??!!
Hello – love this post 🙂
Fave … Torn between 6 and 7 – I LOVE cats, and have recently visited the Monterey Aquarium and saw their beautiful sea otters. Thank you 🙂
Every time I see a picture of #7 I can’t help but smile. It’s so cute that otters hold hands while sleeping! I also love #1, 3, and 8. I wish people laughed more than 13 times a day! As for #6, there are also cat cafes in Japan. I think there’s one in London too! Have yet to visit one, but seems like it would be a very fun experience 😛
Otters, without a doubt.
NUMBER 6! I want all the cats!
So many cool facts here. I love otters. I think they’re one of the coolest animals. And I definitely want to find that cafe in Korea. This a really cool post. Thanks so much.

#8 is my favorite! That’s the way life should be!!!
#3, #7 and #8! These are wonderful! Thank you!
I like #9 since I was born in 1987 and am getting married in 2013 – funny would have never figured that out but I love dates with some strange significance!
Nice I would go 4 no’s: 7,8,9 🙂
I loved #3!! So obvious yet we rarely think about it.. Lovely post 😊
#3 So glad you stumbled upon my blog. All your posts are succinct and sweet 🙂
Thank you so much!
I almost tripped over myself running to the source of the cafe with cats. I am immediately telling everyone about this. Great site–thank you for visiting my blog!
#2 and #8 are my favorites! Laughter keeps the soul young. I’ll have to check out more about Bhutan. It sounds like a cool place! Thanks for stopping by the Clearly Conveyed Communications blog and for the follow. I I’m looking forward to checking out more of your content.
I liked the otters and the blind smiling facts. Very neat and nice assortment!
#7 So sweet about otters. If only humans can be so connected. Thank you for such a feel good post.
No 7 and 3 for me !
but I have smiled 9 times 🙂 oops make that 10
Moods are definitely contagious so happiness is the way to go! I especially love the animal facts. I’d like to go hang out at the cat cafe. Just thinking about that makes me happy! 🙂
What a lovely post! I’m smiling inside and out now. Number 7 is definitely my favourite.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for following me. I’m glad it brought me to this gem!
So glad you enjoyed it!
Nice one.. Keep smiling man.. 🙂
Love this post! And awww… the otters win the prize for me!!
I want to hang out at a cat café!

I hope I can laugh more than 13 times – thanks for following me. I apologize in advance that over the next week or so you will be getting lots of posts – I’m moving a blog from Xanga to here, and there are lots of posts I don’t want to lose. Once moved, I will be down to a more reasonable amount of posting.
Oh, I love the one about the blind people. That is such a sweet thing that they experience the emotion and joy even though they cannot see! I also like the otters holding hands, so cute! Thank you for visiting my blog today and for the follow!
I have a difficulty choosing between 7 and 9, the otter’s life in sleep is so sweet to imagine and the digit thingy was quite a revelation, so obvious and yet obscure.
Lest I forget, thanks for the like.
I agree I think 7 and 9 are the best. No. 7 made me smile and No. 9 was just so very interesting. 🙂
