Today's wisdom comes from a woman I never
met, but have always admired.
Marjorie Pay Hinckley wife
of Gordon B. Hinckley.
Here is what she said,
" 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 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 that
I was really here and that
I really lived."
Great words of inspiration!
and this one,
from LeeLou Blogs
and speaking of home & laughter,
I love this one, not from Sis. Hinckley,
but still a great thought.
