Stars

I love stars.


The fourth floor of the Eyring is amazing because it has incredible pictures of our solar system and the stars.  I love the stars so much I sleep under them :)


Often they remind me about how lucky I am to live in such an amazingly wonderful world.

"Why waste time wishing on stars, when you can pray to the one who made them?"
-unknown (sorry... I looked)
I believe that too often we hurry through life without wishing or praying.  If we would just slow down, we'd see that both our wishes and prayers are coming true.  
So take a break.  Smile.  Relax.  Look at the Stars.  Wish.  
and then 
Pray.
Everything will work out.
Wishes will come true.
Prayers will be answered.
Life goes one.
The world keeps turning.
Enjoy it.

Little Things in Life


"When I think of happiness or joy in this life, I begin with some experiences that are simple and basic.  I see the expression on the face of a one-year-old taking those first steps.  I remember a two-year-old immersed in a soft ice cream cone.  I think of a child loving a puppy or kitten.
If the more mature have not dulled their physical or spiritual sensitivities by excess or disuse, they can also experience joy in what is simple and basic- in flowers and other growing things, in a sunrise or sunset or other beauties of nature, in wholesome companionship."
-Dallin H. Oaks

Have a great week and enjoy the little things in life.

Quote of the Week


"So tell me life's hard. Tell me it will get harder. But remind me I'm strong enough, and will get stronger.
And if you choose to just say, "Life's going to get harder," you'd better believe I'll complete the thought for you.
Because I know you love me, and don't mean to say just say,
"Life gets harder."
Life gets harder, but I get stronger. 
Happier.
Wiser.
More compassionate.
More able to understand others.
More able to help a wider variety of people.
Smarter.
More grateful.
More loving.
More faith filled.
Because I'm also going to keep getting more determined to let anything but the above happen.
Tell me that."
