Amazing Things

Everything is amazing.

And nobody's happy.


In what may I express more gratitude?

That was brilliant. I might have to steal that for my blog.

I like this guy!

And I'm happy.

I express gratitude by asking Him, every day, to help me do my best. To use what he's given me, and trust that he knows what I NEED. Some days it's freakin' hard. But when I ask for peace, it comes, and THAT is what happy means to me.

My favorite scripture is Mosiah 2: 19-24. It may seem random at first but it's not. (Reading the heading and whole chapter will give you the right background.) It's the BEST.

I like to be around happy people, don't you?

EEEEK! That picture! She is SO adorable. Forget everything I said before about not being ga-ga over babies. When I'm not sleep-deprived I could gobble them up. SO STINKIN CUTE.

I'm grateful for Louis C.K., because he's one of my favorite comedians of all time. Fun side story: he said in an interview later that there was no guy sitting next to him mad about not getting Wi-fi on the airplane, he caught himself saying that. And he realized just how ridiculous it sounded in his head so he created a bit about it. I like a man who can make the world laugh about his own absurd life.

My sister and I were just talking about this same topic. How challenging it is to raise children and not have them be BRATS. We live in a time when we want this NOW, and for the most part we get things NOW. There are so many things that we have and can do that we only dreamed of as kids. Watching tv in the car the video games that look real the list goes on and on. Technology has spoiled us. What a great time to live and enjoy life, but how important to appreciat the life we have to live.

Hilarious. I remember Oprah being asked why she built a school in So. Africa and not here. She said it was because when she's worked with less privileged youth here, they asked for ipods, and iphones. That really tells you something.

Gotta go, I'm watching a netflix movies on my ipad.
