Little Things in Life

"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 remember a two-year-old immersed in a soft ice cream cone.  I think of a child loving a puppy or 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- in flowers and other growing things, in a sunrise or sunset or other beauties of nature, in wholesome companionship."
-Dallin H. Oaks

Have a great week and enjoy the little things in life.
