I listened to a talk by Elder Wirthlin that he gave shortly before his passing called “Come What May And Love It” this morning. Man, did that hit the nail on the head for me! I keep being reminded that we need to find happiness in the mess and ugliness of every day, or we’ll never be happy. There are so many things to be happy about. And yes, there are horrible situations that we are facing, and sometimes it’s OK to be sad or upset. Struggling is part of this life. But we can’t let us entirely weigh us down and forget that there are ways to find happiness, even in sadness.
