Happiness is...

1. The sound of Ginger's voice...and that laugh!
2. A missionary son who has "lost" himself in the work.
3. Russell the bottom of this page.
5. A smart, spiritual, grounded, intelligent (and funny!) college student.
6. This music...
7. An amazingly smart little boy who also has such a tender heart...
8. and this too!
9. Ginger's homemade mac & cheese!
10. A pig singing "Jingle Bells."

12. Sorry...couldn't resist...this wonderful song...
13. Reading The Book of Mormon.
14. Two sets of parents who love us so well and set such good examples.

16. This poem...and the person it reminds me of...
17. living next to a temple! And it's free!
18. 15 prophets, seers, and revelators, who indeed "guide us in these latter-days."
19. Knowing that "no man is a failure who has friends."
20. And lest you think that only classical music makes me happy...
21. ...reading other people's lists of the things that make them happy (nudge, nudge!)
