I'm Just a Little Balloon
Honestly, I might erupt because I'm so happy.
There is something truly amazing about life: Hard work pays off, and the Savior's grace knows no bounds.
The Spirit spoke to me very clearly the other day. Oddly enough, the revelation came as I read blogs. Even if we can't see it, everything in our lives line up perfectly. One day, everything clicks and you say "Oh, that's why this had to happen!"
I feel like a red balloon who has been living at the carnival. I was with my fellow balloons, and I was content. Then a careless hand let go of me and- whoosh!- I was heading up, up, up.
"Wait, no!" the little balloon me screams. "I was happy! I was being so good! Why am I up here?!"
So me, this little balloon, is floating over mountains and flying with the birds and almost touching the stars. And I realize: I was happy before, but there is something bigger that I'm meant for. I'm up with the birds, and I just know: Good things are coming my way.
I'm as light as a balloon. Free as a bird.
