Survey of 1,000 families about a happy family life, and the results basically say wearing your heart on your sleeve is the way to go. The survey suggests we're very happy with our family life, and that's a good thing. The number one response to the question about the most important thing one can do for a happier family life is to say these three words. And it's not 'Pass The Potatoes'.  Of course it's, 'I Love You'.

I learned as a kid that 'If Momma Ain't Happy, Ain't Nobody Happy', but that didn't come up in this survey. And my answer, 'expressing gratitude' did come up, just not in the top three answers. No trophy for me this time.
