I think a lot of parenting stress comes from the support you get from your spouse, family, etc. Happiness isn't based upon just having children, job stress, financial issues, etc. play a bigger role in it to me.

Knowing that your child depends on you is a wonderful feeling. They look to you for love and guidance, and want to know that you are protecting them. It's really the little things with them that warm your heart, looks and touches. The cards they make you on Mother's Day, the way they want to sneak into bed with you at night when they are scared, the looks on their faces when you bake their favorite cookies as a treat :)
