Words of Wisdom

Spring in Sardine Canyon - taken by me (while my husband was driving) on our way home from visiting Sam's family

"Mothers, cherish that role that is so uniquely yours and for which heaven itself sends angels to watch over you and your little ones. Yours is the work of salvation, and therefore you will be magnified, compensated, made more than you are, better than you are, and better than you have ever been. And if, for whatever reason, you are making this courageous effort alone, without your husband at your side, then our prayers will be all the greater for you. Know that in faith things will be made right in spite of you, or more correctly, because of you. We thank all of you, and tell you there is nothing more important in this world than participating so directly in the work and glory of God."  - Jeffrey R. Holland

"It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, or so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere through which we look - to affect the quality of the day. That is the highest of the arts." --Henry David Thoreau

"When you get a chance to do something good for people, then act on it. Do anything to touch people's hearts. When you are not there, they remember all those things which you did to them. Be a person like when you are not there, they will badly miss you. Winning hearts of the people is the best achievement in any type of relationships. Always be good and helpful to people, you will be loved more than you expected." ~ Tejas Patel
