Quotes to Live By...

Marjorie Pay Hinckley was the wife of President Gordon B. Hinckley
{Prophet for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints}.
She is one of my heroes.

These are a few of my favorite quotes from her:

"Be kind.  Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

"...the only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it.  You either have to laugh or cry.  I prefer to laugh.  Crying gives me a headache."

“I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, 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 a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

I'm staying home from church today because my little three year old is sick with tonsillitis {poor baby!}.
I'm such a worry wart about a lot of things, but especially about my children when they are sick.
Here's to hoping she's on the mend soon!

Anyway, I love these quotes because they make me smile.
I hope they bring a smile or two to your face too.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
