“Each one of you is living a life filled with much to do. I plead with you not to let the important things in life pass you by, planning instead for that illusive and non-existent future date when you’ll have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey — now.”
President Thomas S. Monson
BYU Women’s Conference, May 2008
This quote was on my friend Julie’s blog this morning and I just had to steal it and put it on my blog!
You know how it seems that you hear or read just what you need to at the exact right time? Well, that time was this morning and that thing was this quote.
After President Hinkley died, I was nervous. I LOVED Pres. Hinkley and I just wasn’t sure I would feel the same way about President Monson. I always really liked hearing Pres. Monson speak, but I just wasn’t sure I could develop the personal relationship I felt I had with Pres. Hinkley. This quote has gone a long way to building up my personal feelings toward him. I feel as though Pres. Monson really understands what it is to be a woman (especially a mother) just by what is said in this small quote. Seems silly doesn’t it….but, this is a prophet of God speaking and with this quote I don’t only feel that Pres. Monson gets me, I feel that God gets me.
Thanks for the great morning thought Julie! I owe you one.
