{ Glad To Be Here }

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s 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 require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…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

  1. I love this quote. I printed it out and put it on my fridge. I don’t recall hearing this before by President Hinckley. Maybe I was too caught up in the delays in life. Thanks for providing a beautiful vista today 🙂

  2. I had this on our wall years ago. It’s just good to remember that it is normal to have “regular” days. It makes the spectacular stuff all that much better.
