Grow Happy

Standard

…that’s what I wish for my children.

As babies, happiness is so easy to achieve, but as we grow, we realize that the world can be so cruel and life, unfair. As my children gets older, I want them to continue to appreciate simple pleasures, to be thankful for small blessings, to be optimistic, to be positive, to see the good in others, to carry their burden with lightness because they are confident in God’s goodness and the support of the people who love them. I’m sure every parent wishes the same, wouldn’t you agree? I know, because God wants us to be!

Here’s a lay-out of a photo oozing with happiness…it never fails to put a smile on my face. I’m sure you’re doing it now, too!
