Sunday Ponderings

On this week of Thanksgiving my mind unfortunately tends to turn toward my doubts and regrets before it stumbles upon the mountain of blessings that I have been given. I shared a lesson this week by an amazing man, Dieter Uchtdorf, who said... "So often we get caught up in the illusion that there is something just beyond our reach that would bring us happiness: a better family situation, a better financial situation, or the end of a challenging trial.
The older we get, the more we look back and realize that external circumstances don’t really matter or determine our happiness.
We do matter. We determine our happiness.
You and I are ultimately in charge of our own happiness."

I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving this year!
