Men are that they might have joy.

You can have a good time. Of course you can! We want you to have fun. We want you to enjoy life. We do not want you to be prudes. We want you to be robust and cheerful, to sing and dance, to laugh and be happy. -Gordon B. Hinckley

Some happy places:

- Snuggling and watching sports.

- Eating ice cream and studying the gospel.

- Sitting on my daddy's bed chatting for hours.

- Laying on the floor in crazy positions writing in twelve different notebooks.

- Sitting quietly on the couch watching my family interact.

- Accompanying.

- Playing the piano in an empty house.

- Singing my heart out in the car.

Sometimes I like to just sit and be close to God.

As I bundle myself in tight, yet elusive memories
the snow falls timorously toward the unwelcoming, cold ground.

As I turn my face to the light
the speckles of winter carress my longing face

A warm chill strikes through my overflowing heart.

Still the snow falls
and still God loves
and still winter speckles gracefully tingle through my visage,
melting right into my soul.
