A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Happy

Happy smiles on happy faces.  And these folks make me happy: grandson Ben, daughter K., and husband B.  We’re looking forward to Ben’s full recovery from his brain surgeries and resulting headaches so that, once again, he can smile like this all the time. Because all of us really would rather be happy…

I’d Rather Be Happy

by Teresa Jennings

(You can listen to the song in the video below)


Oh… oh… oh… yeah… yeah…

Don’t want to be miserable.  Made up my mind.

I’m gonna find happiness, and I’ll be kind,

First to myself, and then to you.

That’s what I’m gonna do.


Don’t wanna be negative. That’s not for me

I’m gonna be positive. Set myself free.

I’m gonna learn to let it go.

That’s how I’m gonna grow.



I’d rather be happy, happy.

I’d rather be happy, happy.

I’d rather feel good, good.

I know that I could, could.

(2 x)



Don’t wanna have bitterness. That’s not okay.

I’m gonna be looking for a better way.

I’ll look inside at how I feel.

That’s what I know is real.


Don’t wanna have attitude.  That’s not my style.

I’m gonna think happy thoughts that make me smile.

This is the path that’s right for me.

That’s how it’s gonna be!




Not gonna be angry, selfish, grumpy or mad. No!

Not gonna be whiney, judgy, gossipy, bad. No!

Above all else, I’ll love myself

Cause I know, I know, I know, I know, I know


I could be happy!
