Chapter One

Happiness is being soul mates

Happiness IS Kissing

Kissing is a human science mainly practiced when people are in love. However, one should note, that even animals have their own way of kissing. Love and kissing is a universal and emotional event practiced by men and beast.

Happiness Is getting Married

-Especially when a baby is already well on the way-

Like your love, God's love too will be with you throughout your life

When You Think Baby Is Coming

Mama, don't worry, but I won't come home for a while, cause I love flying!

    Happiness Is having A Baby, Because Babies are Magic

    Babies are magic
    So sweet
    So fragile
    So volatile
    And when they
    Come home
    Parents start to wonder,
    What do we do?
    Maybe we should
    Get a book on the
    Magic of being parents.
    Babies are Magic,
    And when
    Baby comes home
    The magic begins.
    You have become magicians.

Many men don't seem to be the same size as they were before.

Their size seems to be relative of drugs, beer, or stronger drinks they consume. Yet in their mental shrinkage they think themselves handsome, muscular, tall and macho.

But make no mistake, any aspiring woman will notice the shrinkage and she in turn will shrink away and search for the real men.

Respected But ...

I am sweet sixteen and with my blossoming intelligence I will state that I respect my parents, but do doubt their opinions. Don't they realize that I am a big girl?
