HaPpY Life

Two rules for a Long and Happy Life:
  1. Don't sweat the small stuff
  2. It's ALL small stuff!

"When one is giving service for the advancement of humanity, when one is working without money and without price, with no hope of earthly reward, there comes a real, genuine joy into the human heart."
--Heber J. Grant

"Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet.
Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other."
--Marvin J. Ashton

JOY of living

"Real life is response to the best within us. To be alive only to appetite, pleasure, pride, money-making, and not to goodness and kindness, purity and love, poetry, music, flowers, stars, God and eternal hopes, is to deprive one’s self of the real joy of living."
--David O. McKay

faith & hope

" If we were logical, the future would be bleak indeed. But we are more than logical. We are human beings, and we have faith, and we have hope."
--Jacques Cousteau

True Love

"When you are in Love you can't fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams."

--Dr. Seuss

Faith fuels Hope

"Faith fuels hope... As it flows freely, our perspective changes; our vision becomes clearer. We begin to look for the best, not the worst, in life and in others. We gain a deeper sense of life's purpose and meaning. Despair gives way to joy."
David S. Baxter

I sit here and watch
You grow day by day
And I often wonder
The words that I’ll say
What tidbits of wisdom
Will I impart
Will I remember
To share my heart
I plan to be there
To teach you to drive
To help you reach for
The goals that you strive
The day that you marry
I want to be there
To witness the joy
Of the love that you share
But until that day comes
I hope that you know
How much you are loved
Each day as you grow.
