"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautiful 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 grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn. 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 nails from helping weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheek and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
~Marjorie Pay Hinckley

“You know the only people who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who’ve never had any.”

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer somebody else up.”
“There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.”
“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
~ Bill Cosby
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
"Then said Jesus, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do ..."
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ ... "
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
Before you go and criticize the younger generation, just remember who raised them.
