My Crazy Thought's

Today's Thought's Might be Crazier...

"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal, is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that's he been robbed.  The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages reqire a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise.  Life is like an old time train journey with it's delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts.  Interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed.  The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

Gordon B. Hinckley


Growing up I was the one yelling about being robbed.  It has taken time and refinement (like polishing a stone into a gem) to learn that this quote is very true.

It's a good thing we have those beautiful moments and wonderful memories to help us through the jolts, cinders, smoke etc. 

Gratitude is one of the most important things to learn in life and one not well taught.  We all need to increase our feelings of thankfulness and gratitude, not just around Thanksgiving, but all year round...
