In the last month I have been told on several occasions that I radiate happiness...
What do I have to say about that?
Thank you!
I am flattered to know they think that.
But what is happiness?
To me, it's the fullness of the restored gospel. Nothing makes me happier.
In a world where sometimes I feel lost, unsure, and inadequate it's nice to know that I can rely on the gospel to buoy me up.
I am happy because I know that no matter what happens, I can "be still and know that [He] is God" (Doctrine and Covenants 101:16).
He loves me, and is guiding me, I have no doubt about it. I don't need to see miles down the road, I am happy focusing on one stepping stone at a time.

There is so many more things to be happy about than there are to despair over.
Life is good. Really good.

  1. I love you Syd. And I loved your thank you note to me--pretty much made my day young lady!

    Is your middle name really Juniper?

  2. I'm so glad your hubby got that to you, I knew I could trust him :) Well... it's not legally my middle name, but maybe someday it will be. There is no relation to the residence hall though.

  3. I did wonder, but then I remembered you never lived there....peculiar....
