"I'm glad that you came to see me."
Is 'happy' also fine to use instead of 'glad' here? E.g.
"I'm happy that you came to see me."
Do the two words have the same meaning here?
Thanks in advance
My example that I use, when people can't resist the urge to change someone's writing, is the change "happy" to "glad." It makes no difference at all, but they feel like they "contributed" something to the piece.
There's no difference at all.

Grammar Geek ... is the change "happy" to "glad."GG: You would have communicated the thought so much more effectively if you had only written ...is the change from "glad" to "happy" ....
By the way, Are there any mistakes in the sentence above?
Grammar GeekHi GG,
Thank you very much.
Could you explain what "they "contributed" something to the piece" mean? My English is too poor to understnat that.
Do you mean 'I'm happy that you came to see me' sounds natural?
Yes, it's very natural.
