In Russian this word means to make happy/joyful. This word is the essence of how my life was once miserable, but then God gave me joy and happiness. Now my life’s purpose is to make others’ lives full of happiness. Now I love being a giver or maker of happiness and joy in all the lives of the people who were, are, and will be a part of my own life. In the end, I am extremely grateful for the joy in my own life which actually results from the happiness I get from bringing joy to all those who came into my life.
