A humidifier with water fills my heart with joy

I'm happy in the morning when my humidifier still has water inside the tank

First sentence:

I’m happy in the morning when my humidifier still has water inside the tank.

It’s funny how if the above sentence has slightly different meaning if the phrase “i’m happy” gets moved elsewhere in the sentence.

Second sentence:

In the morning it makes me happy when my humidifier still has water inside the tank.

The first sentence describes a situation that just makes me happy overall. It’s a joy to see the humidifier with water. The second sentence starts to lean towards that yes, I’m happy when there’s water, but it implies if there’s no water, then I’m not happy. It’s very subtle. But the voice is kinda there.

This is what I thought about yesterday morning when I was thinking about my humidifier makes me happy. I was phrasing it my mind and thought about how these two sentences are a little different.

I just like to see you happy, no matter what it takes. I received a humidifier from a friend, free of charge. It was in a sealed box. It looked brand new. Then I opened it. The water conditioner had burst open, the operating instructions were yellowed with age and there were spider eggs in the water reservoir. Even though I cleaned it out, I’ve never used it.

I’m happy in the morning when my body still is inside the bed.
