I love and miss President and Sister Hinckley. There are so many wonderful quotes that I love from these two but recently I happened upon two that are are some of my favorites. I wanted to share them (even though a lot of you have heard them) and I hope they make you feel as good as they did me.
"Things will work out. Keep trying. Be believing. Be happy. Don't get discouraged. Things will work out." -President Gordon B. Hinckley
I can just imagine his distinct voice saying this as I read it. Doesn't that make you feel better about all the cruddy stuff going on?! :)
“I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk’s lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor’s children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”
-Marjorie Peay Hinckley
Doesn't that make you feel better about not being one of those seemingly perfectly put together women? Now I don't feel so bad about having sticky handprints all over my clothes all the time and throwing my hair back in a ponytail. I'm never "together" and I'm still a good person! I love her!
