" The happiest people I know are not those who find their golden ticket; they are those who, while in pursuit of worthy goals, discover and treasure the beauty and sweetness of the everyday moments. They are the ones who, thread by daily thread, weave a tapestry of gratitude and wonder throughout their lives. These are they who are truly happy."
--Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite books. And not just because I have a serious addiction to chocolate. It's wonderful to read about a poor young boy, with no special talents or abilities, winning the prize simply because he was honest. Charlie was just a good boy who tried to do what was right, and in the end he won the greatest prize of all--not a life-time supply of chocolate, but safety and stability for himself and his family.
In the end isn't that even better than the golden ticket? A day-to-day beautiful life filled with beautiful moments?
Enjoy the moment!
