Flecks of Gold

Marilyn Monroe said, "Keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about." Too often I forget that there is so much to smile about.  In April's General conference, Elder Ballard talked about how many gold rushers were too caught up looking for the large nuggets othat they failed to see the flecks of gold in their pans.  This past week I realized that I have allowed myself to overlook the flecks and focus on finding only the nuggets in my life.  So, in an effort to change, my persepctive, I've decided to make a short list of some of the flecks in my life.
