“When I think of happiness or joy in this life, I begin with some experiences that are simple and basic. I see the expression on the face of a one-year-old taking those first steps. I think of a child loving a puppy or a kitten. If the more mature have not dulled their physical or spiritual sensitivities by excess or disuse, they can also experience joy in what is simple and basic.”

I love when I remember to slow down, and observe the simple and basic joys. Sunday before church, Kennedy was reading Nathan stories. It just warmed my heart to watch them. Often, in all the busy-ness of day to day and of raising a family, I forget what is most important. It’s so easy to rush past all the simple things, the small joys . . . the blessings . . . the opportunities to show thanks to my Heavenly Father. These are moments that just pass by, and you don’t get them back. Sunday, I chose the better part! This is something I continue to work on daily!
