the Small things that make us happy!

  Yesterday I came the the realization that it's the small things in life that truly make me happy!   this is how i came to this conclusion... every other Tuesday Sister Fulton and I drive down to Willit's to have your district meeting which composes of 4 missionaries.  It takes us about an hour + to drive 33 miles down the hill through a road that has NO straight parts in it.  So we are constantly turning.  So as we were driving yesterday morning it was really cold and of course RAINY, since that's all it has done since I've been here in the Beautiful town of Fort Bragg!  So as we were driving yesterday it started to SNOW!!! It was super exciting, we both looked at each other and instantly thought "SNOWMAN!" So we continued our journey down the hill ever so slowly because I'm always nervous about driving in snow...but we eventually made it down safely. We made it to the church and found a big patch of grass with lots and lots of snow on it.  so we jumped out of the car, and started to build a snowman, he didn't get to tall, but we were super excited.

We named him Will
    So i was thinking to myself, why does this make me so happy and excited? Is it because we are in California and we didn't expect snow? Is it because we are both from the desert and never spent much time in the snow?
  I'm not really sure why it brought us so much pleasure, In the scriptures the Lord tells us "Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart;"
   I know that Heavenly Father gave us the snow yesterday to gladden our hearts! even though we froze the rest of the meeting, it was so worth it just to be able to play in the snow! I know that My Heavenly Father loves me, and want's me to be happy.  I know that he created all things for, not only to benefit us, but to gladden our hearts as well.  I love my Heavenly Father and know that he loves all of his children!
