A week ago, we decided to do something special with our family for Family Home Evening. We packed the crew up, headed up to Bennett's grave and began compiling a Happiness List. We went around in a circle and began naming - one by one - things that brought us Joy. Some things were simple, some meaningful and some comical inside jokes. But everything on that list meant something. To every one of us.
After finishing our list, I went home and sent the compiled list to my talented, artistic graphic artist friend, Carly from Playful Pickle Design. I gave her an idea and she ran with it.
This is what she came up with.
I love it. I adore it. I cherish it. I blew it up into a massive 20x20 print and am going to frame it for our home. A reminder every time that we look at it of all the blessings in our life. So many things bring us Joy. And remembering the Hand of our Heavenly Father is so tender and sweet.
Thank you, dear Carly. We love you. And we love our Happiness List.
