“Are u happy, Daddy?” my then-3-year-old, Kai,  asked a while back. The mere question impressed me … this mother of all questions …  make that father.

“I am happy,” I answered.

“Why?” Another superb question.

“Because I like my life.” Put it on my tombstone.

That was the entirety of our exchange. I asked Kai that question several times since, and his answer is always this:  “Because I like my life.”

Hear this Universe … make that his answer every time!!!!!!
