"Happiness is not something ready made, it comes from your own actions.” - Dalai Lama XIV
Happiness is choosing to smile on days when it’s hard to forget the pain.
My family went to Island Park the day after my dad’s funeral in July. Some close family friends of ours insisted that we take the keys to their cabin for a few days.
Nate and Emmy have only been newlyweds for about five months now. They are so fun to be around. I love them. :)
Happiness is walking hand in hand.
Happiness is 'not crying because it’s over, but smiling because it happened.’ - Dr. Suess
Their beautiful vintage wedding reception happened back in April...
I personally think happiness is little girls with cute hairdos...
and kisses that last a little too long. :)
Happiness is a visit from your mom…seeing how beautiful and strong she is for all of us.
Happiness is taking your son to the dentist for the very first time...
and styling your girls’ hair like cupcakes for crazy hair day at school.
There is good all around us. We can’t be truly happy unless we’ve experienced the unhappy at times. I hope that I can always remember to choose happiness. Life can be ugly and hard, but I know that when we rely on our Savior every hour, every moment…peace and happiness do come.
