Happiness

For years I have been looking for happiness. I didn't realize that it would be so hard. I had traveled over the country in the search of happiness. "Why do you try so hard," said my friend, "when you might never find it?" I thought for a moment. "Happiness is the only thing you need in life. You don't need air, water, or food as long as you are happy."
So was it worth wasting all my time? Could my friend be right? My head was spinning. I came home soon afterwards.
Years later, I told the story to my little sister. She looked at me with her big round eyes and said, "But sis, happiness can't be found because it was never lost. Whenever I'm with you, I am happy. Whenever I smile, so do you. You were already happy." I found truth in those words and I was satisfied.. My sister had known something that I didn't, and I thanked her for telling me.

Simple, sweet, yet it really got the point across. I liked how you didn't take forever to describe what you wanted to say. Great job!
