A Week of Happiness
By Beth Beutler
1 Mrs. Bowman gave the class an interesting assignment. "This week is Hunt for Happiness Week," she said, soon after the opening bell rang. "Your assignment is to write a journal entry every day this week about how you looked for happiness that day." She passed out small booklets that the students would use for this writing assignment.
2 Jerry rolled his eyes. He hated these writing assignments. Writing didn't come as easily to him as it did to his friend Kenny. Kenny seemed eager to get started.
3 They caught up with each other after class. "What a fun project!" Kenny said.
4 "In your opinion," Jerry retorted. "Hunting for happiness? What am I going to do to find happiness?"
5 "You seem like a pretty happy guy to me," Kenny said. "Aren't you?"
6 "Yes, generally, I'm in a pretty good mood."
7 "So why don't you write about the things that already make you happy?" Kenny suggested.
8 "Like when my dog wakes me up in the morning?" Jerry asked.
9 "Yes, that's a good start. You could also write about things you try to do each day because they make you feel good," Kenny continued. "When do you feel the best, for example?"
