This is the part in the story, that if it was a fairy tale, I would say that we lived happily ever after.

Happily ever after will come... but that is what the next life is for. This life is for testing. For learning. For growing.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, when speaking about stories that end with 'happily ever after', "In each of these stories, Cinderella, Belle, and the miller’s daughter have to experience sadness and trial before they can reach their 'happily ever after."

That is where most of us are in our story. We are somewhere in the middle. There is joy to be found in the journey - but 'happily ever after' when there will be no more sadness is a blessing to be reaped later.

For here and for now...

"Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your 'once upon a time' is now."
