Two years ago a good friend of ours, Jen, had a really rough year. Her husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The doctors here in Las Vegas said there was nothing else they could do for him. They went to UCLA to try an experimental procedure and he passed away during surgery. Not only had our friend lost her soul mate (they truly had an amazing love story) but they also had a kindergartner and a two year old. Being a single mom is pretty tough, and on a particularly rough day, I left her a Seed of Happiness. I told her to keep it where her kids could see it because just in case there was a day she couldn't muster a smile, they would still see one.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, we learned it was my son's new fourth grade teacher's birthday. Mrs. Patzke is so totally awesome and my kiddo was super upset that he didn't get her a present... so thinking real hard about what I had stashed in my "mommy-bag-of-tricks" to quickly wrap and give her, I remembered that I had a handful of seeds of happiness. I put two (one to keep and one to share) in a pretty bag and sent them off with their explanation cards for my son to give to her. I got a call from the teacher that evening about how wonderful they were and how she so appreciated it and my son was glad to make his teacher happy. Job well done.

In 2006 Seeds of Happiness started out as leftover lumps of clay that Mark Borella made into little smiles to give to friends who were going through hard times and needed a little smile.
