Finding your happy place — perhaps with a little help

John plays in the waves of Lake Michigan with his sister and great niece.

John and I played a fun game recently.

We took turns listing off things that made each other happy. I know if John’s having a bad day, going to a movie, having pizza at Lombardi’s or getting a massage will probably improve his mood.

If I’m crabby, he knows coming home to Frank Sinatra or traditional jazz on the stereo, a glass of wine and some good olives will probably mellow me almost immediately upon arrival.

Unquestionably at the top of John’s happy list is playing in the waves of Lake Michigan at Muskegon State Park.

We’re visiting Michigan this week and seeing my hubby body surfing, enjoying something that’s so obviously good for him, is good for me, too — it makes me happy to see him happy.

Can you list 10 things that are guaranteed to make your mate happy?
