I look at my nephew and realize how hard we try daily to make him happy. Funny and silly faces, going to far lengths to keep him happy.
But I also realize that it’s only for a short while. In less than 5 years he’d be responsible for his own happiness.
Your happiness is your responsibility. Not your children, not your spouse, not your friend, not even God- Phillipians 4:4.
It’s a decision you have to make daily.
