I was walking to Macey's today, and I ran into someone from my ward. This kid always seems to have a smile on his face. He's the kind of person you can just tell is genuinely happy to see you. I've got a friend like that back home, too. And I was thinking how much that kind of sincerity and happiness can lift people. It certainly made my day a little better. I think that's a really cool quality for people to have...just joy. I think we should all take more joy at the simple things in life. I was walking along the Provo River trail, looking at all of the beautifully colored leaves surrounding it, and it just made me happy. It made me feel at home to be surrounded by trees like that. So I just wanted to say to anyone reading this: have joy. Take pleasure in the simple things, like walking alone, or good conversations, or making dinner. Remember not to take too much for granted. Life is beautiful.
