Ok a little like my blog name but this is one of the reasons why I picked it. President Monson gave a talk Nov 2008 called Finding Joy in the Journey where he told us to enjoy the things around us and no matter what stage in our lives, we can be optimistic and find things to make us happy.
Sometimes life isn't what we expect and we are faced with more Plan B's than the route that we want to take. My mom would always tell us that we can choose to be BITTER OR BETTER as we are faced with challenging or joyful times.
No matter what, we need to make sure our priorities are straight and our foundations are on the Savior and we are making the time for those positive things and loved ones around us. Take a look at President Monson's talk..
