Seeking happiness, I passed many travelers headed in the opposite direction, seeking happiness.
Robert Brault

It is an individual journey. You don't have to take it alone, but no one else can tell you which direction to turn first.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Mark a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalm 100

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am grateful for what I am and have.
My thanksgiving is perpetual...
O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches.
No run on my bank can drain it
for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
Henry David Thoreau

Of course I am thankful for all the usual things this year 
The Gospel, My Savior, My Husband, My Child, family, friends, a home 
but there have been additions to my list in the last 12 months that has given my life new meaning 
"Hi" Walking Communication Teeth Hair
 Couch Frames Crafts Books Escape
And even more love this year than I had last year 
for the man who made me his over 53 months ago.

If the day and night be such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more immortal - that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself.
Henry David Thoreau

Happiness: an agreeable sensation arising from contemplating the misery of another.
Ambrose Bierce
The Devil's Dictionary

All too often we play the comparison game and only then do we think we are happy. Happiness is an individual sport, enhanced by playing for a team... kind of like tennis.

We are no longer happy so soon as we wish to be happier.
Walter Savage Landor

So true. As soon as we think there is more happiness out there to be had, we stop looking at the happiness we have.

I have only two kinds of days: happy and hysterically happy.
Allen J. Lefferdink

This is the kind of statement we all should be able to make... I guess we are all able... This is the kind of statement we should all choose to make, and not be lying.

William Shakespeare

Sunday, November 4, 2012

If we will follow the advice and counsel that the Lord has given, our pathway will be one of happiness. It will be a pathway, perhaps not of ease and comfort always, but in the end it will terminate in the presence of our Heavenly Father, and glory, immortality and eternal lives will be our portion.
George Albert Smith
