Inspirational Start to the Week

Jessica sent me this quote last week. I liked it & thought I would share it:
"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just ordinary people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just 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
Gordon Hinckely passed away earlier this year at a ripe old age. He was the leader of the LDS church & in the public eye here a lot in Utah. While I don't embrace many of his beliefs, I thought this was a great quote.
