Happiness is ....

Its hard to improve upon Charlie Brown's "Happiness is ..." song.

But I'm going to try ... Here goes:

Happiness is
Crunching some dry leaves
Kissing a baby
Wrapping a gift

Seeing an old friend
Eating some chocolate
Smoothing a rift

Happiness is
Hearing some good news
Feeling a calm heart
Seeing some light

Being with family
Building a snowman
My bed at night

But most of all, happiness is
A state of being, a feeling of trust, an exercise of faith.

'Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it"
Joseph Smith

FYI I'm with my parents right now. My mom is doing really, really well. Thank you for your prayers, your cranes, your well wishes.
