What are you happy for this past year?

Hello everyone,

I spent some time this Christmas in Seattle with my Iphone interviewing the people that live on the streets of Seattle and to ask them what they are happy for. The video is entitled 100 reasons to be happy and it is a testimonial from the people that have had it the toughest The responses were very moving and it had a great effect on me. I would love to know from others what are you truly thankful for in 2011. Much love was shared on that day and I would love to share their message with the world.

So what were you happy for in 2011?

Thank you,

    Jan 7 2012: I was happy members of my extended family made a point to attend my high school graduation. I rarely see my dad's side of the family, and they surprised me by flying out to see me graduate. My mom's side of the family came as well. Her parents toughed it out on what was a chilly June day and made it through the entire ceremony with a graduating class of close to 500 kids. High school was not exactly an awesome experience, but was easy, so graduation would have been meaningless without my family there to share the milestone with me.
