What brings you happiness?

I received a Christmas card this year that wished me happiness. I suppose what was unusual and caught my attention was that the sentiment was handwritten, rather than printed on the card. I am content with my life, but have thought a lot lately about what really brings happiness to one's life.

For me, one thing would be a close relationships with my Savior. Another thing would be surrounding myself in my home with things I love (books, colorful lights to offset the dark winter nights in New England, and music).

I'm curious to know what sorts of things bring you happiness. Not just for a moment, but the deep down peaceful happiness that is lasting.

I am happy when I feel I have helped someone else or made a good decision.
I am also happy when I see hear from friends or family or see their pictures around me.
