another thinker

We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are."
— Marjorie Pay Hinckley

yah... chew on that one for a while. :)

I think we as women need to take it easy on ourselves. We have way too much on our plate to worry about what the rest of the world is doing and how we can keep up with it all.
We need to be happy with the talents and strengths we do have, and enjoy sharing that with others. We also need to be accepting of others talents and strengths and learn from them. Gosh, if we could do both of those things wouldn't we be happier and just more relaxed. I think so!

I just love Sister Hinkley.

I loved your thoughts--very wise. I also love Sister Hinckley--I find myself often saying the tiltle of her book, "Small and Simple Things", to remind myself where in the real joys of life lie. Thanks for some good reminders that will start my Monday off great. We just got back last night from Sierra Vista and the blessing of Spencer and Marlee's baby Madison.
