Find Happiness Everywhere (FHE)

This is a simple little story about the most darling 2yr old girl in the WORLD! (yes, I am slightly biased. She is my sister)

Kimi didn’t really talk much before I left on my mission. She would use ASL to communicate mostly. We had a lot of fun times going on walks, watching the train go by & painting. On one particularly sunny day, we were on the front porch. I was drawing clouds & she was colouring them in.  Nothing else was going on, we were just enjoying the day together. At one point Kimi sat back, looked up at the sky & signed happy in ASL as she sighed. Then quietly she spoke the word, “Happy.” with a smile.

How often are those small moments over looked? It’s easy to recognize hard times we have, but we are also given moments of peace & happiness. I believe children are given to us so we can remember & reflect on what is most precious & simple.

    I forgot about that! I do remember her always saying how happy she was though. So much so that when you brought home the giraffe pilliw she named it…Happy.

    She still has him. And she still is a beacon of happiness.
