“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that… Life is like an old time rail journey…with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” –Gordon B. Hinckley
I come to you tonight with a plea that we stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life we try to "accentuate the positive." I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment virtue and effort. -Gordon B. Hinckley
It doesn’t always take going to extraordinary lengths to make a positive difference in someone’s life—especially for one that could use a lift. Often small, kind, and thoughtful things in ordinary situations can impact others for the better. A friendly smile, a warm handclasp, a question about one’s family, quick words of encouragement, a brief telephone call, a sincere compliment, a small note of thanks, a heartfelt testimony of truth. What will YOU do today to make a difference?
