St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that in all we do, we seek happiness.
The primary source of earthly happiness for human beings — more than work, hobbies, sports, politics or any other interest, including the biggie, cash — is being with those who are most dear to us.
For most people, these dear ones are our family members, either bio or chosen.
The way we live our family lives is essential to our happiness.
Not actually profound news, but a good reminder :)
