Lot 48: what makes me happy

what makes me happy

there are a lot of things that make me happy!  even though there a lot of things that are going wrong in my life right now, there is a lot to be grateful for.  these things that make me happy are ranked in order of happiest to least happy. 

the gospel of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. i would be nothing without my religion, without my Savior.  i love this gospel. i love it more than anything, i love my God more than anything.  there is nothing more important to me  than my relationship with God.  
speaking of which, something kind of major happened in the Mormon community.  the Church released a video explaining our garments. you may have  heard of our garments, and people refer to them as "magic underwear" which is highly offensive to us.  the Church released a video showing garments, which is a huge deal because you can't see them unless you have been through an endowment ceremony.  but what is an even bigger deal and something that gave me chills and made my jaw drop,was that in the video, the Church showed the temple robes.  this is a  HUGE FREAKING DEAL because even members of  the church who haven't been through the endowment ceremony are allowed to see the robes.  so to show those sacred robes to the world is extremely, extremely shocking.  the huffington post wrote a  very well done and respectful article on the video and i strongly encourage you to watch the video below.   the temple robes are worn over a white dress and are shown at the end of the video.

my family.  that's obvious, but they make me happy.  especially those cute little babies that make me laugh.  

my friends.  these two girls have been by my side for so long and i love them to the moon and back.  bffs foreverrrrr

  • blogging!! duh! i can't believe how much i love this little hobby of mine!! 
  • writing.  writing stories, writing articles, writing on this blog, writing anything!!
  • knowing and talking about the ins and outs of television, as i did when i explained the anatomy of a tv show
