At first sight we see her as a very blissful young woman who seems to have ¡§everything¡¨ ¡V ¡§she was married¡¨, ¡§she was young¡¨, had an ¡§adorable baby¡¨, an ¡§ab-solutely satisfactory house and garden¡¨ and ¡§modern friends¡¨ (p.123) ¡V but later we should find out that she is everything but satisfied with her life . As Bertha makes ref-erences to a pear tree in her garden a dozens of times throughout the story seeing it ¡§as a symbol of her own life¡¨ (p.123) I would say that she feels herself rooted to the life she has created in the same way as the pear tree is rooted to the garden. But there is quite a more explicit connection between Bertha and the pear tree in the sense of growing and flowering. As already stated even since the Middle Ages the pear tree has often been seen as an image for the female sexuality and also in Bliss it serves as such an image . The pear tree is described as a ¡§tall, slender pear tree in fullest, richest bloom.¡¨ It stands ¡§perfect, as though becalmed against the jade-green sky¡¨ (p.122).
Janie start out sitting under “a pear tree. With kissing bees singing of the beginning of the world" (11). Janie gets her sense of what love is from her spring time experiences under the pear tree.

He gave her what she had set her heart on that one spring day so many years ago– her horizon, her dream, her pear tree love. With the memory of Tea Cake by her side, “[she] [pulls] in her horizon like a great fish net”(193).
Mrs. Hannigan, Rooster, and his girlfriend created a scheme to be able to claim Annie as their own. When there plot fails, Annie is later adopted by Mr. Warbucks and Grace and she is able to live her life in Luxury and Happiness. In my opinion, the overall theme of Annie is you can accomplish anything as long as you have a positive attitude. Annie was able to escape Mrs. Hannigan, change Mr. Warbucks, and end up having the best parents any orphan girl could ever want. Annie kept positive no matter how hard the situation got and no matter how negative people were around her.
Through us she could live them, breathe them, feel them, win them. Once my mother had finally stopped fussing with the sewing needle, she pulled all my hair to one side and looked at me like I was some kind of sparkling jewel. I happily took a few steps in a pageant walk, turned and returned to my oroginal spot. Truthfully, it was nothing spectacular, but it looked like my mother thought it was some fantastic moment, so I played along just like I always did. “Oh, honey, you look perfect,” she said to me as her eyes glittered, “I just know that you’re a lock for winning the pageant tomorrow.” “I know, Mama.

We might not have the same opinions, paths, and ways of living; but we all, millions of people around the world, share the same purpose of life: Being able to say “I am having a good life!” What we mean by “good life” is living in pure happiness and having a wonderful peace of mind. The difference between us is that each one of us chooses a different way in his pursuit of happiness. Some find it in stability with a big house, a family, and a good paying job. Some find it in adventure and wildness, travel, and taking risks. While others don’t really have specific criteria or an organized plan, they just believe that happiness comes with living each day as if it was the last, with no worries about the rest.
Of course, everyone wants to be happy in life. No one wants a life full of hardships where nothing seems to go right. But happiness is defined in so many different ways. Some find happiness when others are happy or when they do good deeds, while others find happiness in tangible success, like money and health. A happiness project encourages and helps one devote more time and energy to find true happiness.

As the novel begins, Janie walks into her former hometown quietly and bravely. She is not the same woman who left; she is not afraid of judgment or envy. Full of “self-revelation”, she begins telling her tale to her best friend, Phoeby, by looking back at her former self with the kind of wistfulness everyone expresses when they remember a time of childlike naïveté. She tries to express her wonderment and innocence by describing a blossoming peach tree that she loved, and in doing so also reveals her blossoming sexuality.
