Just Be Happy!

Someone has gone around and whipped the smiles off people's faces for some reason. We as a people have become very depressed lately. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!?!?! Things have gone wrong in the world for as long as history has been recorded. Don't you think that maybe in the future things will get bad too? All I'm saying is that as LDS members we should be happy that things are bad. Think of the lives we can bless, or the happiness that we can bring to people who have not yet heard the message of Christ and his everlasting convenent of Salvation (Baptism) and Exaltation (Eternal Marriage). For those who are not LDS, was there ever such a time where you could be walking and be talking to a person via text message 5o miles away. We are so blessed with technology and the beauty of the earth. Why not be happy. God has given us much to be happy about.

I did a little research experiment if you will. While on a the CHT (Church History Tour), every restaurant I went to I told the people I was with to be extremely nice to the waiter/waitress. You wouldn't believe the kind of service we received. Once at an Ihop we sat down and only had about 20 minutes to get our food and eat. We had been told that the service was pour and that if you wanted food you got there an hour early. So we made it a point to be extremely nice and told our waitress about our time dilemma. She very kindly got our food to us within 5 minutes and we ate in 10 leaving us 5 minutes to spare and giving her each five dollars for tip. What a smile she has on her face but why? Because of kindness. When you are happy and respect other they will be happy and respect you. Maybe not always but try to make peoples days happier.
