i’m not saying life is perfect, but i’m doing okay, i’m hanging in there… thanks to everyone’s thoughts, comments, phone calls & prayers. everyone struggles, i know and accept that. if we never experience the hard times, then it’s difficult to appreciate the good ones. so each & every time i feel the weight of the world on my shoulders, i need to take a step back & just breathe… each & every time i feel alone, i need to remember that i have friends and family who love me… each & every time that i feel like i’m not good enough, or that what i’m doing doesn’t make a difference, i need to remember the words of a wise man – gordon b. hinckley:
i have discovered that life is not a series of great heroic acts. life at its best is a matter of consistent goodness and decency, doing without fanfare that which needed to be done when it needed to be done. i have observed that it is not the geniuses that make the differences in this world. i have observed that the work of the world is done largely by men and women of ordinary talent who have worked in an extraordinary manner.
