So Many Beautiful Reasons To Be Happy

These are the things that help me to find happiness through pain...

• Ponder the scriptures to understand the plan of happiness.

• Pray with faith in Jesus Christ.

• Love and serve others.

• Receive the temple ordinances. Return to bless others.

• Listen to the prophet and obey his counsel.

• Be grateful for what you have.

• Smile more.

I promise it works!!

This is the chorus from one of my favorite happy songs..

"Got my dreams, got my life, got my love
Got my friends got the sunshine above
Why am I making this hard on myself
When there’s so many beautiful reasons I have to be happy?"

p.s. I like the picture on your side bar of the men in your life! I sometimes wonder if good honorable men comprehend the impact, strength and reach of their goodness.
